THYROID WELLNESS CENTER

The Thyroid Wellness and Imaging Center is dedicated to providing superior medical care for patients with thyroid disease. Dr. Bjelica has the expertise to diagnose and successfully treat the most complicated benign and malignant thyroid disorders by performing office based ultrasound thyroid exams and ultrasound guided thyroid biopsies.

Thyroid disorders are very common in the United States, with over 20 million people under treatment. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the front of the neck, just over the windpipe. It is a part of the endocrine (hormone) system that plays a major role in regulating the body’s metabolism.‚Äč
