Our advanced mini-incision surgical technique leads to less operative time, less scarring, and enables you to leave the same day as your surgery. With our advanced parathyroid imaging techniques, we lead the profession in the highest parathyroid localization rates. Parathyroid surgery is our only focus. This enables us to maintain superior results while providing personalized care for each and every patient.
Effective AK Parathyroid Treatment
Because no drugs or medications can cure hyperparathyroidism or parathyroid disease, surgery is the only available way to treat the condition. The only known cure is to remove the parathyroid gland which is overproducing parathyroid hormone. The traditional parathyroid operative technique requires a large neck incision to locate and examine the four parathyroid glands located behind the thyroid. Once found, the tumorous gland is removed. The patient is left with a prominent neck scar. Recovery is slower as well. The patient will generally require at least one 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.
In the end, scarring is minimal and best of all, patients can usually return home the same day.
