Specialist Endocrine Surgeon

Dr David Wilkinson’s endocrine surgery specialty includes management of simple thyroid nodules and over-active parathyroids, but also complex, recurrent, malignant, functional and hereditary conditions.

Excellent outcomes are achieved when endocrine gland disease is treated by a sub-specialist who performs a narrow range of procedures frequently. Dr Wilkinson is one of a handful of surgeons who genuinely belong in this category with regard to thyroids and parathyroids. He tailors treatment to suit individual patient circumstances using surgical techniques that are minimally invasive, where appropriate, thus reducing potential side effects.

Dr Wilkinson holds an appointment as a visiting consultant specialist Endocrine Surgeon at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, a major teaching hospital and tertiary referral centre in Brisbane. He runs his own private practice with consulting rooms in Spring Hill, and operates at a number of private hospitals.
