Re-operative Parathyroidectomy

Treatment for patients who have had unsuccessful parathyroid surgery.

Though most parathyroidectomies are successful in treating parathyroid disorders, some patients are not cured during their first surgery. Re-operative parathyroidectomy is needed for these patients in order to cure them.

Challenges of re-operative parathyroidectomy

Re-operative parathyroid removal surgery is a complex procedure. Previous parathyroid surgery can make the process more challenging. In addition, the risk of complications is higher than other parathyroid surgeries.

Fortunately, our doctors are specially trained to perform this procedure. Our high volume parathyroid surgeons have the experience needed to perform these surgeries successfully and safely.
