Effective AZ Parathyroid Treatment
There are no drugs or medications that can cure hyperparathyroidism or parathyroid disease. The only way to treat the condition is to surgically remove the parathyroid gland that is overproducing parathyroid hormone. A traditional parathyroid operation requires a large neck incision to find and examine the four parathyroid glands located behind the thyroid. Once the tumorous gland is found, it is removed. In the end, the patient is left with a prominent neck scar. They will usually require at least a night of hospitalization in order to to recover.
Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery is an outpatient procedure requiring just a one-inch incision. The procedure can be performed in less than half an hour. Preoperative imaging and localization of the parathyroid tumor enables a minimally invasive or "mini-incision" approach to the surgery. Only a 2cm incision is made directly over the abnormal parathyroid gland. By finding the the tumor before the incision, we can avoid a traditional neck exploration and make a smaller incision.
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.
