Colorado Parathyroid Surgeons
The New York Center for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery is the premier center for minimally invasive parathyroid surgery. Patients come to us from Colorado - from Denver or Boulder - and everywhere in the United States. The scenic Warwick Valley, located about one hour north of Manhattan, lends itself to speedy recuperation following your parathyroid surgery. With our advanced mini-incision parathyroid surgical technique, you will experience less operative time and less neck scarring. Most patients leave the same day as their surgery. With our advanced parathyroid imaging techniques, we have some of the highest parathyroid localization rates in the profession. Parathyroid surgery is our primary focus. This enables us to provide and maintain superior results while providing each patient with personalized care.
Effective CO 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.
You can usually go home the same day, and you'll have minimal scarring. Scar appearance improves over the six months after surgery. In the end, many scars are difficult to see.
Expert Parathyroid Surgery by an Expert Team
Dr. Lawrence Gordon, MD, FACS is a board certified Head and Neck Surgeon who specializes in parathyroid and thyroid surgery. He is a parathyroid surgeon with over 15 years of experience with many different modalities of parathyroid surgery. The technique he favors is a focused lateral approach where a lateral mini-incision is made over the abnormal parathyroid gland after intraoperative localization with high-resolution ultrasound or MIRP. Also trained in plastic surgery of the head and neck, Dr. Gordon places incision lines for maximal cosmetic benefit. He is one of the few parathyroid surgeons fully trained in all modalities of parathyroid disease surgery.
