Effective Minnesota 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, you'll have minimal neck scarring and best of all, you can usually go home the same day.
