Effective NJ 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.The traditional parathyroid operation technique requires 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 that requires only a one-inch incision and can be performed in less than half an hour. Preoperative parathyroid imaging and localization of the abnormal parathyroid tumor enables a minimally invasive or "mini-incision" approach to the parathyroid glands. Finding the tumor before incision allows us to make a smaller incision without the need to do a traditional neck exploration. A 2cm incision is made directly over the abnormal parathyroid gland.
In the end, scarring is minimal and best of all, patients can usually return home the same day.
