Overview

Dr. Harrell is a medical director of the Minimally Invasive Endocrine Surgery Center at Memorial Integrative Endocrine Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Endocrinologists and President of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE). He is Board Certified in the practice of Clinical Endocrinology since 1985 and he has devoted the past 25 years of his professional life to the practice of Endocrinology in Florida. He sits on the Board of Directors for AACE and is the national chairman of the AACE Socioeconomics Committee. Dr. Harrell's specific interests include thyroid cancer, parathyroid disease, osteoporosis and adrenal disease. He has performed thyroid and parathyroid ultrasonography in his office since 1992 and has been certified by the American College of Endocrinology in thyroid ultrasonography and ultrasound guided thyroid biopsy. Dr. Harrell recently was honored by the American College of Endocrinology with the ECNU (Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasonography) designation. Dr. Harrell serves as an ultrasound instructor for this national program and helped to construct the original certification examination in 2008. Dr. Harrell has worked hand in hand with the Endocrine Oncology Surgery Service at Imperial Point Medical Center since 2003 to build a widely recognized Endocrine Surgery Center supported by such technologies as intraoperative parathyroid hormone testing and intraoperative radioguided parathyroid localization. Imperial Point has played a key role in bringing Minimally Invasive Radioguided Parathyroidectomy to Broward and Palm Beach counties. This procedure, along with intraoperative Parathyroid Hormone testing, allows us to perform curative parathyroid surgery in 15-30 minutes through a one-inch incision in selected patients with hyperparathyroidism. Previously, these patients were subjected to a two hour neck dissection through a three to five inch incision. Thus, curative parathyroid surgery can be offered safely to patients with complicated medical histories who cannot tolerate a long and complicated neck dissection.
