Scripps teams work closely across clinical disciplines to provide patients with the most appropriate treatment for cancers and tumors of the endocrine and neuroendocrine systems.
These two systems are responsible for the body’s production and release of hormones to regulate cells and organs, which include the pancreas, adrenal, thyroid, parathyroid, and pituitary glands. Scripps has particular expertise in the specialized area of thyroid cancer, treating more patients than any other San Diego health care system, according to nationally recorded data by the Commission on Cancer.
