The New York Parathyroid Center is dedicated to providing superior medical care and education to patients with disorders of the parathyroid glands.

Founded in 1991 by Dr. Paul LoGerfo, a pioneer in minimally-invasive parathyroid surgery, and Dr. Robert J. McConnell, an expert in Parathyroid disease, the Center evolved from a multidisciplinary thyroid clinic that was established at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center more than 60 years ago into a specialty center devoted to the care of patients with parathyroid disease.

Today, Dr. McConnell and Dr. James Lee, a leader in the minimally invasive surgical treatment of parathyroid disease, serve as the directors of the New York Parathyroid Center. Members of the Center include endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists, who are world leaders in the classification, treatment, and identification of parathyroid disorders. Its members are actively involved in researching the causes and treatments, as well as developing prevention programs, for parathyroid diseases.

Their efforts also extend to the medical community at large so that the standard of care for all parathyroid patients may be improved worldwide. Although the Center is based in New York, it provides a referral service to parathyroid specialists across the United States and throughout the world.

We look forward to putting our parathyroid resources to work for you.
