Simon Grodski is a dedicated endocrine surgeon focusing on surgery of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. Endocrine surgery is a new and developing specialty and Simon is one of only a handful of dedicated endocrine surgeons in Melbourne. Simon offers a comprehensive endocrine surgery service including assessment, diagnosis and management of all thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal conditions.

Simon’s services include:

- Office performed ultrasound of the thyroid and parathyroid glands

- Ultrasound guided biopsy

- Minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for both thyroid and parathyroid disease

- Thyroid cancer surgery

- Re-operative thyroid/parathyroid surgery

- Laparoscopic (keyhole) adrenal surgery

Simon is happy to provide assistance with any thyroid conditions as well as assisting in the diagnosis and management of hypercalcemia, hyperparathyroidism and adrenal tumours. Endocrine surgery is a rapidly developing field and requires a dedicated specialist in order to offer the latest minimally invasive techniques and ensure optimal outcomes. Simon will liaise closely with your general practitioner and/or your endocrinologist and works with a dedicated thyroid cancer multidisciplinary team.

In addition to endocrine surgery, Simon is a fully trained general surgeon and provides services as an emergency and trauma surgeon. Simon also has an interest in salivary gland surgery.

I was born in Melbourne in 1974. I grew up in Brighton and now live with my family in Caulfield. I graduated from Monash University Medicine with Honours in 1997. I did my surgical training at The Alfred Hospital and passed my General Surgical Fellowship exam in 2004. I spent two years doing further specialist training in Endocrine Surgery, working with some of Australia's leading endocrine surgeons.

I married my wife Lindsay in 2000 and we have three children. Emily was born in 2002, Asher in 2005 and April in 2010.

I have a keen interest in clinical research and was one of the foundation members of the Monash University Endocrine Surgery Unit – an academic unit with the goal of promoting excellence in endocrine surgical practice and research. I regularly publish research in local and international medical journals as well as presenting research at local and international scientific meetings. I also keep up to date with the latest research in the world wide literature as well as regularly attending endocrine surgery meetings to ensure that I stay abreast of the latest advances and techniques in endocrine surgery.

By the way, I am happy for you to call me "Simon", "Dr. Grodski" or "Mr. Grodski".
