Cooper University Health Care has launched a new Section of Endocrine Surgery, and has appointed endocrine specialist Dr. Lisa Reid as its inaugural head.
The new department will provide specialized treatment for patients with a wide range of endocrine diseases, including diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, Grave’s disease, goiters, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and adrenal and thyroid cancers, among other conditions.
“Dr. Reid has distinguished herself as an outstanding clinician, leader and educator. Cooper will now provide comprehensive options for patients with endocrine disorders under her excellent leadership,” said Dr. Jeffrey Carpenter, chief of the Department of Surgery at Cooper.
Reid has practiced at Cooper for 14 years and has led the development of the premier endocrine surgery practice in southern New Jersey.
A graduate of University of Dentistry and Medicine, Reid completed her surgical residency at Cooper University Hospital, followed by fellowship in endocrine surgery at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital.
Dr. Maureen Moore, a graduate of Temple University School of Medicine, will join Reid in the practice. Moore completed her residency in general surgery and a fellowship in advanced endocrine surgery at the Weill Cornell College of Medicine in New York City.
