Thyroid & Parathyroid Disorders
There are many intricate aspects of management of Thyroid disorders which are best left to the specialist. Dr. Lakhani is considered an authority as far as management of thyroid disorders are concerned.

Mrs. Geeta Mehta
My husband and myself consulted Dr. Om Lakhani for my thyroid and for his diabetes. We recently bumped into him in Chicago where we was there for a conference. He was kind enough to email us our clinical notes eventhough he was on a holiday which was very useful to us. Very few doctors have deep and intricate knowledge about Thyroid nodules as Dr. Lakhani does. After seeing the ultrasound and FNAC report, he suggest I NOT GO for surgery. And he was right ! Please be aware, if you have thyroid nodule, the first doctor to see is an Endocrinologist and not a surgeon. It seems in India surgeons are only interested in operating and would advise surgery in all nodules WHICH IS WRONG. All thyroid nodules ARE NOT CANCEROUS. We are also thankful to the surgeon in Zydus who recommended we see an Endocrinologist, Dr Lakhani first and not go for surgery directly
