Specialties

Dr. Vijay M Varma has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

The Doctor to remember and appreciated.

I thought I was going to die from Papillary Thyroid. I refused other doctor and finally I met him. I was very happy with his expertise. He said " Don't worry, drive carefully and do not smoke cigarette. It was 30 years ago! He is my doctor and my friend now.

My son was diagnosed with extensive metastatic thyroid cancer as an eleven year old in 1997.. Dr. Varma has overseen his treatments and follow up care for almost 16 years. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. My son, my husband, and I trust no other physician like we trust Dr. Varma. We continue to consult him even though we have moved out of the mid-Atlantic area.

Dr. Varma cured my thyroid cancer. His great cure rate is posted on the Shady Grove Hospital website. He's a thyroid expert, and consults with other doctors on the most difficult cases. 75% of his patients are thyroid cancer patients. He's organized, personable and caring, and explains things well. After surgery, he handled my endocrinology and nuclear medicine scan. A year and half after initial scan, he's still doing my endocrinology and I'm feeling great. My husband likes him too. Lynn his assistant is fabulous. I've been very pleased with Dr. Varma and would highly recommend him.
