Panagiotis (Takis) Bletsis, MD
General & Endocrine Surgeon, Scottsdale, AZ
I am a board-certified General Surgeon with advanced fellowship training in Endocrine Surgery. Having completed a high volume of endocrine surgery cases in my training, I am confident performing thyroidectomies, minimally invasive and four-gland exploration parathyroidectomies, and adrenalectomies, including complex and re-operative cases. I am passionate about taking care of patients with endocrine organ disorders and have a particular interest in adrenal gland tumors as well as difficult to diagnose forms of primary hyperparathyroidism and kidney-induced hyperparathyroidism. Additionally, I perform general surgery procedures such as gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery, breast surgery, and more.
Since coming to a surgeon’s office can lead to anxiety and a desire for answers, I take great pride in addressing those feelings by listening to your concerns and explaining the best evidence-based treatment options available. Together, we will create an individualized plan you are comfortable with that achieves the best possible outcome while giving you peace of mind. When I am not taking care of patients, I enjoy being active outside, soaking in Arizona’s beautiful weather, watching football, soccer or Formula 1 on the weekends, and spending quality time with family and friends.
