Referring Physicians

Our team is committed to providing optimal patient care and keeping our referring physicians involved in the care of their patients.

 

We welcome referrals from all types of practitioners in any medical field, from general practitioners to subspecialists and allied health care providers.

Our multidisciplinary team consists of physicians from medical endocrinology, endocrine surgery, radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, and genetics. Each patient seen in the multidisciplinary has their case discussed during a weekly Multidisciplinary Endocrine Oncology Tumor Board. Presentation of a patient's case and discussion afterward allows for a comprehensive plan to be established which helps ensure the provision of optimal patient care. Our physicians are highly experienced in the treatment of rare endocrine disorders such as adrenocortical carcinoma, pheochromocytoma, medullary thyroid cancer, anaplastic thyroid cancer, parathyroid cancer, gastrinoma, insulinoma, other neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas, and carcinoid tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. Patients with endocrine disorders related to a genetic syndrome are also treated, including those with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (Types I, IIA and IIB), Von Hipple Lindau, Neurofibromatosis, and Li-Fraumeni syndromes.

Prior to your referral, we suggest you review our consultation guidelines page.

Procedure Videos

To assist in your and your patient's understanding of our procedures, we've developed a set of procedure videos detailing the surgical process for minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, minimally invasive thyroidectomy and open thyroid surgery.

Multidisciplinary Endocrine Oncology Clinic

The Multidisciplinary Endocrine Oncology Clinic is one of only a few medical centers in the United States recognized as an international center of excellence for the treatment of adrenal cancer.

Referring Physician Communication

Referring physicians receive timely communication about their patients after being seen in our multidisciplinary clinic. As a large number of patients travel to U-M from across the country and from other nations, we strive to provide seamless transitions of care, whether care is provided here at U-M or in the patient's home town.

In addition, the Priority Parathyroid Program has been created to provide a single-trip solution for patients with simple parathyroid disease. For more information about the program and to see if your patient could be eligible, please click here. If you intend to refer a patient to the program, please forward the documentation listed Request for Records.

The U-M Multidisciplinary Endocrine Oncology clinic has been established as a Destination Program in order to assist patients traveling to U-M from a distance and their physicians in transitioning their care to U-M and back home again. Our team works with referring physicians and their office staff to have appropriate tests and records forwarded to our clinic prior to a patient's visit to ensure all necessary information is available for our physicians to fully evaluate patients in a detailed fashion and make appropriate decisions without having to repeat tests or await existing information prior to making recommendations for care.
