Through the collaboration of dedicated endocrine surgeons, endocrinologists, and other specialists, we provide a multi-disciplinary approach for patients with thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal diseases and cancers utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment techniques.
Minimally Invasive Adrenal Surgery
Minimally invasive adrenal surgery is the laparoscopic removal of adrenal tumor through the abdominal or back approaches (posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy). There are approximately three small incisions instead of one large, as the surgery has been performed in prior years. This technique makes the healing process faster and with minimal scar formation. An approach that is also used is the posterior retroperitoneaoscopic adrenalectomy (posterior laparoscopic adrenalectomy from the back) laparoscopic surgery through the back, which enables the surgeon to avoid entering into the abdominal cavity and ultimately results in significantly less post -operative pain and a quicker recovery. The cosmetic result can be more aesthetically pleasing than a traditional abdominal approach.
Minimally Invasive Parathyroid Surgery
Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery is the removal of one or several parathyroid adenomas through a small neck incision. The incision is placed in the natural skin crease.
Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery includes video-assisted or endoscopic parathyroidectomy, where a surgeon uses a camera to magnify the view. This technique makes the healing process faster and with minimum scar formation. In order to complete minimally invasive approach, surgeons utilize intraoperative parathyroid hormone (PTH) monitoring to determine the cure after the removal of parathyroid adenoma.
Minimally Invasive Thyroid Surgery
Minimally invasive thyroid surgery is the removal of one half or the whole thyroid gland through a small mid-neck incision. The incision is placed in the natural skin crease. Minimally invasive thyroid surgery includes video-assisted or endoscopic thyroidectomy, where a surgeon uses a camera to magnify the view. This technique makes the healing process faster and with minimum scar formation.
