Raymon H. Grogan, M.D., MS, section chief of Endocrine Surgery at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, was appointed to the Fellowship Accreditation Committee for the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES). In addition to serving on the AAES Research Committee, Dr. Grogan received the Paul LoGerfo Research Grant to study the relationship between the human microbiome and thyroid disease.
Dr. Grogan is a pioneer of several novel techniques for operating on the thyroid and parathyroid. He is one of only a few experts in the United States on Transoral Endocrine Surgery, a novel approach to surgery for both thyroid and parathyroid disease that leaves no visible scar. Dr. Grogan was one of the first surgeons to perform this operation in the United States, and the first surgeon to perform this operation in Chicago and the Midwest. He is also an expert in other forms of minimally invasive thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgery.
Dr. Grogan began his training as an undergraduate at Emory University in Atlanta, followed by medical school at the University of Miami, in Miami, Fla. He continued his training with a surgical internship in New York and a research fellowship in microvascular surgery at New York University in Manhattan. He completed General Surgery Residency training at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., followed by research and clinical fellowships in Endocrine Surgery at the University of California San Francisco.
