Expert Thyroid Surgeon

Dr. Bridget Brady grew up in Austin and is first fellowship–trained endocrine and parathyroid surgeon in the region. She has a passion for and expertise in diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. Dr. Brady is board-certified in general surgery and completed her endocrine surgery fellowship in 2006 under Matthias Rothmund, MD, an internationally acclaimed endocrine surgeon.  She has performed thousands of thyroidectomies and parathyroidectomies here in Austin. Dr. Brady focuses on a variety of minimally invasive techniques to optimize patients’ medical and cosmetic outcomes. Her fellowship training in Germany and experience in Austin have enabled her to specialize in patients with recurrent or persistent disease of the thyroid and parathyroid, including thyroid cancer. She offers complete diagnostic workups including in-office ultrasounds and FNA biopsies of thyroid nodules and lymph nodes with genetic testing. Come see why referring doctors and patients are calling our team of doctors the “no scar” surgeons.
