LEWISTON — Wesley P. Fairfield, M.D., a specialist in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, has earned endocrine certification in neck ultrasound from a national professional organization.

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has certified that Fairfield successfully demonstrated his skills at using both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided neck ultrasonography to evaluate thyroid and parathyroid disorders through fine needle aspiration. Those diagnostic procedures are used in the diagnosis and management of thyroid disorders, thyroid growths, thyroid cancers and other disorders affecting the front of the neck.
