At Providence Saint John’s our fellowship-trained endocrine surgeon offers advanced minimal access surgical care for parathyroid conditions and the most up-to-date diagnostic tests for hyperparathyroidism, including 4D CT parathyroid localization and intraoperative hormone testing. The most appropriate treatment will be determined by your surgeon and personalized for your situation.
Parathyroid surgery is used to treat benign tumors of the parathyroid gland. The parathyroid gland produces a hormone to regulate the body’s calcium level. Surgery is generally an outpatient procedure and patients will go home the same day; however, how much time you spend in the hospital and how fast you recover depend on your general health and the extent of the surgery.
If you’ve been diagnosed with a parathyroid condition or have been recommended for surgery, please call us for a consultation at 310-829-8751.
