Effective PA Parathyroid Treatment
There is uniform agreement in the medical profession that persons diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism require surgery for removal of the abnormal parathyroid adenoma. 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 addition, the patient is left with a larger and more prominent neck scar.
Today, minimally invasive parathyroid surgery is an outpatient procedure requiring justa one-inch incision. The procedure can be performed in under 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. Because over 90% of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism have a single parathyroid adenoma, it's usually not necessary to explore all four glands.
In the end, scarring is minimal and best of all, patients can usually return home the same day.
