Question Thyroid Surgeon recommend. for So. CA

Hello Everyone,

My endo has recommended thyroid surgery after 2 nondiagnostic biopsies of my nodule. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good thyroid surgeon in the Los Angeles, So. Bay, or Long Beach areas?

Thank you!

Hi bozcrew welcome ~

To my knowledge there's only a few of us from So. Calif. who post on Thyroid board. (I'm 100 miles NE of LA) So asking us to recommend a surgeon is difficult.

Did your Endo suggest a surgeon?
Best of everything

Hi Sue,

Yes, my endo did recommend a surgeon, but he is a general surgeon, and I want someone who specializes in thyroids. I have a friend who recommended a surgeon down in San Diego, but I was trying to find someone closer.

Thanks for the welcome!

You could call your medical groups local office to see if they have Thyroid speciality surgeons listed.

Or your Medical insurance (Blue Cross/ blue shield etc) themselves to see if they know of Thyroid surgeons
