Parathyroid surgery, or a parathyroidectomy, is a surgical procedure in which part or all of the parathyroid glands are removed.
Benefits of Parathyroid Surgery
Parathyroid surgery offers patients who are dealing with hyperparathyroidism an opportunity to find long-lasting relief. By removing the glands, your blood will no longer have higher levels of calcium.
This will also ensure you don’t experience long-term consequences from the increased calcium levels. The incision is also only a few centimeters long and can be well concealed with little scarring.
