Thyroid cancer is the most rapidly rising cancer in the US, and will be the #2 cancer in women by 2020.  Thyroid cancer is typically very treatable and survivable, but is easier to manage when caught early.  Unfortunately there is no blood test for thyroid cancer, so routine check ups with your doctor and self thyroid exams may help identify a lump in the neck.  If you feel a lump or have a history of neck radiation or family risk factors for thyroid cancer, talk to your doctor.  For more information, check out the Thyroid Cancer Survivor's Assiciation at www.thyca.org.

Welcome to the Denver Center for Endocrine Surgery!

Dr. Kimberly Vanderveen is Denver's highest volume thyroid and parathyroid surgeon, and the only surgeon in the Rocky Mountain region whose practice is dedicated to surgery of the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, and adrenal glands.  At DCES we use the most advanced techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, to minimize the scars and recovery time from surgery.

Our goal is to make the surgical experience personal and compassionate, and minimize the impact of surgery on our patients' lives.  We promote an evidence-based, team-approach to provide highly-specialized surgical care, tailored to each patient's individual needs.  

What we treat...

Hyperparathyroidism (overactive parathyroid or tumor)

Thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer

Recurrent endocrine cancers in the lymph glands or other organs

Tumors of the adrenal glands including pheochromocytomas

Hormone-producing pancreas and neuroendocrine tumors (e.g., insulinoma, glucogonoma, carcinoid tumors)

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) syndromes and other inherited cancer conditions
