Simply put, endocrinology is the study of endocrine glands. Endocrine glands are a group of glands in the body which secrete hormones. The purpose of the secreted hormones is to cause a specific response in other cells of the body which are located far away. As shown in the picture, the hormones are secreted out of the cells of an endocrine gland into the blood stream giving them access to all other cells of the body.
A great example of how hormones work is shown in our 5 minute video animation showing how a parathyroid gland grows into a tumor that secretes parathyroid hormone which then circulates through the blood stream to cause lots of problems throughout the body. Remember, the definition of a hormone is a molecule that is secreted by one cell which has an effect on another cell some distance away.
Endocrine surgery is the division of surgery which specializes in the surgical treatment of endocrine diseases. Endocrinologists and endocrine surgeons typically work closely together to provide the most advantageous care to patients afflicted with endocrine disorders. To be recognized as an endocrine surgeon you have to devote a major portion of your surgical practice to endocrine disorders and have performed at least 100 endocrine operations. There aren't too many surgeons who specialize in endocrine surgery, and... there are fewer surgeons still who perform more than 10 parathyroid operations per year
