Abstract

The increasing complexity in the management of surgical disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, and neuroendocrine pancreas tumors have led to the emergence of endocrine surgery as a surgical subspecialty. Studies showing the relationship between hospital/surgeon volume and patient outcomes highlight the importance of advanced postgraduate training in this field.
