Endocrine surgeon and researcher Dr. James T. Broome is one of just two fellowship-trained endocrine surgeons in the middle Tennessee region, treating patients from throughout the region, from middle Tennessee, extending north to Kentucky, south to Alabama and points east and west to the entire state.

"While we know most thyroid disease stems from environmental factors, we still don't know which factors," said Dr. James T. Broome, Endocrine surgeon. "Fortunately, there is much we can do to treat and manage diseases of the thyroid, parathyroids and adrenal glands."
Dr. Broome's clinical interests include disease management of the thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals and pancreas, neuroendocrine tumors and rare genetic disorders. He is particularly interested in PTH-guided (AKA minimally invasive) Para thyroidectomy, advanced laparoscopic adrenalectomies, the management of thyroid malignancy, and inherited cancer syndromes.
