Endocrine Surgery in Argentina


Endocrinology is the branch of medicine responsible for the study of the glands that produce hormones: the ductless glands or endocrine glands. An endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of these glands. Through endocrine surgery, endocrinologists manage the restoration of the normal balance of hormones in the body.

The endocrine system consists of several glands scattered throughout the body that regulate the amount of hormones for proper functioning of the human body and to maintain the metabolism. Endocrine glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pancreas, ovaries, testes, among others.

Sublimis Medical Tourism offers affordable endocrine surgery abroad. Our endocrinologists in Argentina perform all kind of general and laparoscopy procedures: 


Thyroid Surgery: The thyroid is a small gland located at the base of the neck and produces hormones that regulate metabolism. Although its function may be affected when there is a greater or lesser production of these hormones, the gland may be enlarged and form nodules.

Parathyroid Surgery: The parathyroid glands are very small, the size of a grain of rice (4 or more) that are located behind the thyroid gland. Despite its small size, they are very important as they regulate the level of calcium in the blood, which is involved in many biological processes and is important for the functioning of the muscular system and nervous system.

Adrenal Surgery: The adrenals are small glands that are located above the kidneys and their function is to produce important hormones involved in body's response to stress such as cortisol, aldosterone and adrenaline. They also produce some of the sex hormones.
