So, if you are feeling nervous to undergo parathyroid surgery- here’s all that you need to know about how the surgery is performed:
• Parathyroid surgery usually takes place inside the operating room. Most of these operations are performed under general anesthesia, although local anesthesia with I.V. sedation can be used in some cases.
• The surgery is necessary as it can help protect the nerves that are meant to cause movement of the vocal cords and the remaining parathyroid glands- so that they function in a normal manner. Additionally, it is quite common to have a low calcium level after the surgery is successfully done. That situation is nearly always temporary as normal functioning is restored in over 98% of patients (within few weeks).
• You may have heard about minimally invasive, or “keyhole” parathyroid surgery. This usually requires identification of an abnormal parathyroid gland prior to surgery. Please Note: Most patients can go back to their home within 2 hours after the surgery is completed.
If you are suffering from parathyroid- contact Dr. Harris. The doctor is adept in getting the overactive parathyroid gland removed in a far more effective manner. To get more details, it’d be wise to directly connect with the doctor.
