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 specifically dedicated to surgery for thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. At DCES we use the most advanced techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, to minimize the scars and recovery time from surgery. Because we are a recognized center of excellence, we delight in treating patients both locally and from around the globe.
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
Hormone-producing pancreas and neuroendocrine tumors (e.g., insulinoma, glucogonoma, carcinoid tumors)
Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) syndromes and other inherited cancer conditions
