Ohio Parathyroid Surgeons
The New York Center for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery is the premier center for minimally invasive parathyroid surgery. Patients come to us from Ohio - from Columbus or Akron - 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 OH 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.
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.
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.

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.
