If your thyroid or parathyroid disorder requires surgery, the doctor may recommend thyroidectomy, which is removal of the thyroid gland, or parathyroidectomy, which is removal of an overactive parathyroid glands.

There are many variations on these surgeries, and our team performs most of them as outpatient procedures.

We also use minimally invasive and advanced surgical techniques during most thyroid and parathyroid surgeries. These methods offer many benefits after surgery compared to traditional techniques, including:

  • Smaller scars
  • Less pain
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities
