Sir,

I thoroughly enjoyed your article on Interventional endocrinology: A futuristic perspective. I am currently an internal medicine resident in Mexico, but my plan is to go into endocrinology in two more years. This specialty is amazing in my opinion, but has been labelled as a "passive" one by many. Few procedures, usually limited to thyroid biopsies (which nowadays are done more by interventional radiologists) are available (or so I thought!). I was very interested by, [1] where you list the currently available endocrine interventions. You clearly state that interventions can be either surgical or medical, but I would like to focus on the surgical ones. The pituitary cavernous sinus and internal jugular vein sampling are usually done by neurosurgeons, but I was wondering in India, how much of the other procedures are done by endocrinologists (or should be done by endocrinologists), specially the invasive ones. Maybe a new subspecialty should be born called interventional endocrinology! Maybe we need to become more aggressive and more "hands on"; less theoretical and more practical.

Thanks again for a wonderful article. Best regards from Mexico.
