THYROID AND PARATHYROID SURGERY
Treatment of conditions of the thyroid and parathyroid glands in both adults and children.
We work with patients and their families to develop an individualized treatment plan, considering each patient’s preferences and goals. We routinely collaborate with primary care providers, endocrinologists, and nephrologists to offer patient-centered and coordinated care.
As a high-volume practice, we perform well over 100 thyroid and parathyroid surgeries every year. This level of experience and expertise allows us to offer excellent outcomes and with a very low chance of side effects.
WE MANAGE DIAGNOSES SUCH AS:
Hyperthyroidism and Grave’s disease
Goiter and substernal goiter (when goiter extends into the chest)
Enlarged thyroid nodules
Hyperparathyroidism, both primary and related to kidney/renal disease
Expertise in related structures of the neck. This allows us to evaluate and treat conditions associated with thyroid/parathyroid disorders, including effects on voice and swallowing, or spread of disease to other areas of the neck such as lymph nodes that sometimes require removal for cancer treatment.
Laryngeal (voice) nerve monitoring during surgery as well as rapid intraoperative parathyroid hormone testing to enhance patient safety and surgical results.
Same day discharge after surgery for most patients, without the need for overnight admission.
