Whether you are from Montgomery or Birmingham , we operate on patients from Alabama and all throughout the United States. We are located approximately one hour north of Manhattan in the scenic Warwick Valley. This calm environment lends itself well to healing and recuperation after your surgery. We perform an advanced mini-incision technique that leads to a smaller scar, less operative time, and enables you to go home the same day as your surgery. Our advanced parathyroid imaging techniques lead to the profession's highest parathyroid localization rates. We focus on only one type of surgery: Parathyroid Surgery. This enables us to maintain our superior results while providing personalized care for each and every patient we treat.
Effective AL Parathyroid Treatment
No drugs or medications can cure hyperparathyroidism. The only way to treat parathyroid disease is to remove the parathyroid gland surgically. With a traditional parathyroid operation, a long neck incision is required. Then the surgeon examines the four parathyroid glands located behind the thyroid. The tumorous gland that is overproducing parathyroid hormone is then found and removed. With this technique, the patient is left with scarring on neck. Recovery takes longer, and the patient usually require at least a night of hospitalization.
Performed as an outpatient procedure, Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery requires only a one-inch incision to the neck. Preoperative localization and imaging enables a minimally invasive or "mini-incision" approach to the surgery. By finding the the tumor before the incision is made, we can avoid a traditional neck exploration that requires a longer neck incision. Surgery can be completed in less than half an hour, with just a 2cm incision made directly over the abnormal parathyroid gland.
You'll find that scarring is minimal and best of all, you can usually return home the same day. Following surgery, scar appearance improves over the next six months. In the end, most scars are light and difficult to indentify.
