Hyperparathyroidism is a rare condition that, unfortunately, is not well understood. The signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism are so similar to other conditions that many people are often misdiagnosed. The only cure for hyperparathyroidism is surgery; therefore, it is crucial that patients seek treatment from a parathyroid expert. Babak Larian, MD, FACS, is a board-certified head and neck surgeon whose parathyroid expertise makes him one of the best parathyroid surgeons in the country.
The complexity of parathyroid conditions and the difficulty of identifying their symptoms make it important for all patients who have or think they may have a parathyroid disorder to seek treatment from a parathyroid specialist. The only cure for hyperparathyroidism is surgical removal of the dysfunctional parathyroid gland. When an expert performs the surgery, the success rate is very high. Most patients experience significant symptom relief immediately following surgery.
One of the best parathyroid surgeons in the country, Dr. Babak Larian performs more parathyroid surgeries in one week than most head and neck surgeons perform all year. He is committed to using cutting-edge surgical techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure his parathyroid patients get the highest level of care.
Dr. Larian is known for performing minimally invasive parathyroidectomy surgery, in which his extensive pre-operative testing allows him to make one tiny incision through which he removes the affect gland. About 10 minutes after Dr. Larian removes the dysfunctional parathyroid gland, he performs intra-operative parathyroid hormone testing. By testing the PTH level during surgery, Dr. Larian can be sure the affected gland, was removed as the PTH level should begin to return to normal right away. If it does not level out, he knows another one of the four glands is dysfunctional and needs to be removed. This intra-operative testing is part of what makes Dr. Larian the best parathyroid surgeon in the nation.
