Hyperparathyroidism is a rare disease, that is often poorly understood even by specialists. The only treatment for this condition is surgery which has a very high success rate when done properly, by a surgeon with great expertise in parathyroid surgery.
Parathyroid problems can be very complex; the signs and symptoms are similar to other diseases, and so the patients are often misdiagnosed. Each case needs to be carefully evaluated to make sure the diagnosis is correct. The laboratory tests can be confusing, which can mislead both the patient and their doctors.
Once properly diagnosed, we have to to identify which one of the parathyroid glands are abnormal. This again needs to be done by a team that has expertise, so that the correct gland is identified as abnormal, which then allows for the patient to qualify for a minimally invasive procedure.
Dr. Babak Larian, the Director of the CENTER, is a head & neck surgeon deeply committed to treatment of individuals affected by parathyroid disorders.
Highly respected by peers and patients alike, The CENTER for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery is the premier facility in the nation for the treatment of hyperparathyroidism. We use the most innovative and minimally-invasive techniques that have incredibly high success rates and low risk of complications. Furthermore, during parathyroidectomy surgery, we use intra-operative PTH testing to ensure that the surgery is successful.
