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 IN Parathyroid Treatment
Because no medications or drugs can cure parathyroid disease or hyperparathyroidism, surgery is the only way to treat the condition. Removal of the parathyroid gland which is overproducing parathyroid hormone is the only known cure. Traditional parathyroid operation techniques require a large incision in the neck to locate and examine the four parathyroid glands located behind the thyroid. The tumorous gland is then located and removed. Patients that opt for traditional surgery usually require at least one night of hospitalization. In the end, the patient is left with a more prominent neck scar.
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.
In the end, scarring is minimal and best of all, patients can usually return home the same day.

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.
