After fellowship training she began her career in 1993 as an attending surgeon at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions where she has built a very busy endocrine surgery practice, established an endocrine surgery fellowship program, and directed an NIH funded molecular biology lab for the past 15 years. Her research projects include researching molecular markers associated with thyroid cancer in order to improve the current treatment of patients with suspicious thyroid nodules as well as the examination of several clinical aspects of hyperparathyroidism. Currently, she is Chief of the Endocrine Surgery Section and Co-director of Research in the Department of Surgery. Dr. Zeiger has also held several leadership positions in national medical societies, including Vice President of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES), as Research, Publication and Membership Committee Member and Chair for AAES and the American Thyroid Association.
