Endocrine Surgery San Diego
Endocrine surgery is a type of surgery that focuses on diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. Olde Del Mar Surgical in San Diego specializes in endocrine surgery for the removal of the adrenal gland.
The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system, whose function is to release hormones into the bloodstream. These adrenal glands are found on top of the kidneys and create hormones called catecholamines which consist of adrenaline and noradrenaline.
The hormones control of blood pressure, chemical levels in the blood, water use in the body, glucose usage, and the “fight or flight” reaction during times of stress. They also affect heart rate, blood pressure, and sweat.
