About Endocrinology & Metabolism Institute
Cleveland Clinic’s Endocrinology & Metabolism Institute is committed to providing the highest quality healthcare for patients with diabetes, endocrine and metabolic disorders, and obesity.
Our staff is dedicated to exploring ways to improve the care of these patients and to teaching the best methods for treating them. Our diabetes and endocrinology services are continually ranked in the top ten in the nation by U. S. News & World Report.
Our multidisciplinary institute is made up of more than 30 staff physicians, 18 fellows, 80 nurses, medical assistants, diabetes educators, secretaries, patient service representatives, coders, administrators and managers, working together to provide the finest care in the country.
Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
The Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism manages specialized centers of care for patients with diabetes, thyroid disorders and pituitary disorders. Collaboration among endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, and bariatric surgeons and physicians allows the Institute to work as a multidisciplinary team, providing personalized treatment plans and the best possible patient care.
Our free-standing Diabetes Center is located near Cleveland Clinic's main campus, and offers an attached parking lot for convenient and easy parking. Here, patients can receive access to a multidisciplinary team including endocrinologists, diabetic educators, dieticians and nurse practitioners. Our goal is to help those with diabetes receive early specialty care and education, and get on the right track with their diabetes management. Diabetes education classes and retinal screenings are also available on-site.
Department of Endocrine Surgery
Our endocrine surgeons have the most extensive experience in the world in the surgical care of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, endocrine and pancreas disorders. Advanced minimally invasive technology is often utilized:
- We perform robotic adrenalectomies, thyroidectomies and parathyroidectomies.
- We are one of the busiest centers in the country for laparoscopic radiofrequency thermal ablation of neuroendocrine tumors that metastasize to the liver.
- We offer a laparoscopic liver resection program.
Our endocrine surgery team’s thyroid and parathyroid surgery case volume has more than quadrupled in the past 10 years. Patients are increasingly referred for complex conditions such as reoperative problems, advanced cancers and hereditary endocrine syndromes.
Cleveland Clinic’s Thyroid Center services are designed so that all of the specialists you need – including endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons and a complete nursing staff – work together under one roof as a team to accurately diagnose and treat all forms of thyroid disorders. Our high-volume center holds nationally and internationally recognized expertise, and is the home of the largest thyroid cancer surgical program in Ohio and the five surrounding states. Our experts perform more than 500 endocrine surgical procedures every year – many of which are complex and reoperative surgeries – and will work hand-in-hand with your primary care physician to help you receive the most seamless care for your condition possible on an ongoing basis.
