How do I find an experienced adrenal surgeon?

Make sure that the surgeon you choose is experienced. This means that he or she performs at least 20 adrenal operations a year. Be sure to ask surgeons how many operations they perform each year and what their complication rates are. Your endocrinologist or primary care team should be able to recommend good surgeons in your geographic area.1
