Effective Michigan 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.
Performed as an outpatient procedure, Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery requires just a one-inch incision. Preoperative parathyroid imaging and localization is what allows a minimally invasive or "mini-incision" approach to the procedure. By locating the the tumor before the incision with preoperative imaging, we can avoid a larger incision required by a traditional approach. The minimally invasive urgery 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.
