General Information About The Department

Ankara City Hospital Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases Department started to provide service on February 7th 2019. Endocrinology Clinic serves outpatients in the polyclinics and inpatients in the service wards when necessary for treatment or medical tests. In addition, there is one Pre-op Endocrinology Polyclinic for evaluation of Health Committee patients and pre-op patients in The Oncology Building. Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases Department treats diseases of endocrine system which is also known as endocrine glands responsible for production and secretion of hormones. Metabolism disorders which include fat, protein and carbonhydrate reproduction/intake are also managed in the department. Endocrinology specialists (endocrinologists) work in this department follow the latest developments about diagnosis and treatment of endocrine system diseases.

Featured Procedures:

1. Ultrasonographic evaluation (Thyroid and neck lymph nodes evaluation ultrasound-guided): It is a noninvasive imaging method to be applied for evaluation of thyroid diseases. Thyroid gland-related problems are evaluated via ultrasonography (USG) and when a nodule in thyroid is detected, it is decided whether a biopsy evaluation is necessary or not based on ultrasound characteristics. Ultrasonographic evalution of lymph nodes are also made in our center. The first step to take in differentiation of benign malignant nodule and lymph nodes is USG and fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) as next.

2.  Ultrasound-guided Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (from thyroid nodules, lymph nodes): Based on ultrasound characteristics, FNA is applied to nodule or nodules. FNA Procedure is a convenient, cheap and safe method to investigate whether nodules detected by FNA USG is malignant or not. FNA is an easily applied procedure in the outpatient polyclinics without any need for medication or local anesthetic agents. The ideal procedure is to apply it via USG and it is available in our clinic. 

3. Ultrasound-guided thyroglobulin calcitonin measurement (washout) from lymph nodes or thyroid nodules: Most types of thyroid cancers metastasize to  neck lymph nodes. It is important for evaluation of malignancy of thyroid nodules or lymph nodes.  When cytologic examination by FNA is insufficient to make a diagnosis, washout procedure may be required. Washout procedure with cytology together detect metastatic lymph nodes up to  %100.  Thyroglobulin calcitonin measurement (washout) procedures are carried out for thyroid nodules and lymph nodes in our clinic.
