Parathyroid gland

Specialty of Surgery

The surgery of the parathyroid glands involves the partial or total removal of the glands near the thyroid. The minimally invasive surgery can be performed by standard surgery or through an incision in the neck. The procedure is as follows: the problem is identified through techniques that identify the hormone in the bloodstream and other tests that locate the hormone in the tissue, such as cervical ultrasound and scintigraphy. Through a small incision of about 10 or 15mm a camera of 5mm is inserted to help the surgeons perform the operation, displaying the procedure through a monitor connected to the camera.
