Normally, an endocrinologist doesn't do the surgery (cancerous or non-cancerous), they have no surgical training; therefore, a general surgeon does the surgery, and the endocrinologist follows it afterwards.

A few months ago, I was very sick, zero energy, freezing cold, depressed, weight gain, thought I was dying. I read every word of this Hypothyroidism Revolution program and followed all the advice. My life turned around the first week. I started to feel human again. Within weeks my energy came back and I felt like living again.

Get the entire hypothyroidism revolution system today? just choose the best option for you.

Generally speaking, an endocrine surgeon, ENT surgeon, or general surgeon will preform the thyroidectomy.
The endocrinologist will work with your sister after her surgery to make sure her thyroid levels are appropriate and to schedule any radioactive iodine treatments (if needed).
