The Thyroid Program at Boston Children's Hospital is one of the only centers in the United States exclusively devoted to the care and treatment of children with thyroid diseases. Our program's Thyroid Nodule Clinic is one of the largest pediatric practices of its type in the United States.

Depending on your child’s particular needs, we draw on resources outside of the Thyroid Center, collaborating with radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and pathologists at Boston Children's to deliver multidisciplinary care. Our program also offers a nursing staff and clinic coordinator to work closely with your family. And because most pediatric thyroid disorders are life-long, we also work closely with Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to provide care that extends through adulthood.
In addition to providing treatment for our patients, the Thyroid Program at Boston Children's conducts basic and clinical research aimed at improving the care of children with thyroid disease. Ongoing clinical projects include investigations of childhood thyroid cancer and glandular dysfunction.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
