Biography

Dr. Jason Prescott specializes in the surgical management of benign and malignant diseases of the parathyroid, thyroid and adrenal glands. His expertise includes laparoscopic adrenalectomy, minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, as well as central and lateral neck dissection for metastatic thyroid cancer.

An alumnus of the National Institutes of Health Medical Scientist Training Program, Dr. Prescott leads a dedicated basic science research team that focuses on the mechanisms of thyroid oncogenesis, specifically studying the molecular underpinnings of tumor invasion and metastasis. Dr. Prescott's work in this area has been published in peer-reviewed journals, and he has written numerous book chapters on the surgical management of endocrine disease.

Dr. Prescott's primary language is English, but he is also proficient in German.

On a personal level, Dr. Prescott attempts to remain well rounded outside of the hospital, participating in activities such as underwater archaeological excavation of bronze-age Mediterranean cities and Tae Kwon Do, in which he holds a Black Belt.
