This article summarizes the key features and clinical considerations related to preoperative management and planning for the care of patients of common endocrine disorders (diabetes mellitus, adrenal insufficiency, thyroid disease), a less common disorder but one that has significant perioperative implications (acromegaly), and 2 disorders for which preoperative management is essential to good postoperative outcomes (pheochromocytoma and carcinoid syndrome). There are few evidence-based guidelines for preoperative management of chronic endocrine disease; hence, this review is based on recent subspecialty society consensus guidelines and professional society clinical practice recommendations.
