Mount Sinai Health System has a rich history of caring for patients with adrenal disorders. Because of their complex nature, adrenal gland disorders require a host of disciplines to maximize the care of the patient. The Adrenal Center at Mount Sinai brings all of these experts together as one multidisciplinary team to focus on all aspects of care for each patient. Using a team approach, our Endocrinologists, Endocrine Surgeons, Cardiologists, Radiologists, Interventional Radiologists, Neurosurgeons, Nuclear Medicine Physicians, and Geneticists provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan for these complex diseases.
Our surgeons offer innovative minimally invasive approaches to adrenal surgery, including both laparoscopic transabdominal and retroperitoneal approaches to adrenalectomy, single incision laparoscopic adrenalectomy, adrenal sparing surgery, and adrenal autotransplantation. All of these procedures are performed in our state-of-art minimally invasive operating suites at Mount Sinai, affording patients improved cosmetic results, shorter hospitalization, and quicker recovery. Patient safety is a top priority at our program. The Mount Sinai Adrenal Center is an active participant with the Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program (CESQIP), a national quality initiative that is managed by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. CESQIP allows surgeons and hospitals to closely monitor their outcomes with an implicit goal of improving outcome. More information about CESQIP can be found at cesqip.org.
