Dr. Gilchrist Jackson specializes in Surgical Oncology, Endocrine Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery. Prior to joining Houston Methodist Surgical Associates, Dr. Jackson built a surgical practice at Texas Oncology Surgical Specialists and Kelsey-Seybold Clinic where he previously had a lengthy and productive tenure at Kelsey Seybold Clinic. He created and served as Chairman of its Free-standing, COC approved Cancer Program.
He trained with the best mentors at UT Southwestern School of Medicine Affiliated Hospitals and MD Anderson Cancer Center where he had a Fellowship in Surgical Oncology/Head and Neck Surgery/ Endocrine Surgery and was on the Faculty. His clinical research interests include the diagnostic imaging for patients with hyperparathyroidism, the early diagnosis of thyroid cancer through FNA biopsy, parotid tumors, and function-preserving neck dissection for thyroid and other head and neck cancers.
Dr. Jackson’s extensive clinical practice includes patients with hyperparathyroidism, benign thyroid disease including goiter and Grave’s disease (hyperthyroidism) and all types of thyroid cancer including selective, limited or more extensive neck dissection. Surgery is carefully tailored to the extent of disease and includes MIP parathyroidectomy. Dr. Jackson treats MEN (multiple endocrine neoplasia) patients, and patients with adrenal functional tumors such as Conn’s (hyperaldosteronism), Cushing’s Syndromes, pheochromocytoma, and other adrenal tumors. He also treats neuroendocrine and functional tumors. His other clinical interests include breast cancer surgery and diagnosis as well as head and neck cancer/tumors, melanoma, soft tissue sarcoma and other diseases of the salivary gland, colon, small intestine, stomach and pancreas. As a General Surgeon he can treat patients with complex Endocrine and non-Endocrine tumors of many sites. He focuses on preservation of function and cosmetic appearance through minimally invasive techniques. He works closely with Endocrinologists when appropriate to properly prepare patients for surgery and to achieve optimal outcomes.
He has been recognized repeatedly as one of the Best Doctors in America in Surgery and Oncologic Surgery, and as Top Doctors in Texas. He is a member of many selective Surgical Societies including:
American Head and Neck Society, American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, American College of Surgeons, International Society of Surgery, and Society of Surgical Oncology. He has published multiple scientific articles and book chapters and given presentations at medical meetings.
