Specialties

Dr. Surendra J Sood has the following 2 specialties

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
    These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
    In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism

Great doctor.

I assume thus us the right Dr. Sood. If so, he has done 4 thyroid biopsies on me. I was very nervous to have this done. Who wants a needle stuck in your neck while awake? Dr. Sood is very nice, explains each step to you, makes sure you are comfortable and in no pain. The procedure was a little uncomfortable but was made much more tolerable by the kindness and patience if the doctor and his staff. Knowing Dr. Sood would be performing follow up biopsies was actually a comfort. He also felt I did not need this done every 6 months. In general, I am not happy with most of the doctors I or my parents have seen at Gould but have every confidence in this doctor. One iof the few that still treat a patient as a person.
