The University of Colorado Thyroid Tumor Program

Director: Bryan R. Haugen, M.D.


The Thyroid Tumor Program incorporates a multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients with thyroid nodules and cancer. Patients can be seen in consultation with thyroid specialists (Bryan Haugen, M.D., Janice Kerr, MD, Virginia Sarapura, MD, Michael McDermott, M.D., Jennifer Morrison,M.D. PhD and Dr. Nikita Pozdeyev M.D. PhD), Oncologists (Madeleine Kane, M.D., Ph.D. and Daniel Bowles M.D), Endocrine surgeons (Robert McIntyre, M.D., Christopher Raeburn, M.D., Maria Albu-Cruz, M.D.), Diagnostics Radiology (Kristin McKinney, M.D., Nayana Patel, M.D.)  and Radiation Oncologists (David Raben, M.D.,). The Program also incorporates the expertise of cytopathology (Sharon Sams, M.D, Carrie Marshall, M.D.) and Nuclear Medicine (Phillip Koo, M.D., Jennifer Kwak, M.D) to provide efficient evaluation of thyroid nodules and long-term management of patients with thyroid cancer. The Program uses state-of-the-art serum thyroglobulin testing and blood dosimetry calculations for radioiodine treatment. The Program is also actively involved in the use of recombinant human TSH (Thyrogen™) as well as the development of protocols for serum thyroglobulin RNA detection and molecular markers for suspicious or indeterminate nodules. The Thyroid Tumor Program is also investigating therapeutic agents for advanced, aggressive forms of thyroid cancer (vitamin A derivatives and different chemotherapeutic agents).
