Diagnosis and treatment of parathyroid adenomas

Parathyroid glands control the amount of calcium in our blood. Everyone has four parathyroid glands, usually located right around the thyroid gland at the base of the neck. About one in 100 people will develop a parathyroid gland tumor during their lifetime, causing a disease called “hyperparathyroidism.” Our dedicated team can treat different forms of this destructive disease including:

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism (by far the most common)
  • Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (typically on dialysis)
  • Tertiary Hyperparathyroidism (post kidney transplant)

Types of treatment for parathyroid tumors

  • Mini-4-Gland-Parathyroid Surgery (our standard operation)
  • Re-Operative Parathyroid Surgery (failed surgery at another hospital)
  • Resection of Mediastinal and Chest Parathyroid Tumors
  • High-Resolution Sestamibi Scanning
  • 4-D CT Scanning (rarely necessary)
  • Fusion Scan (CT w Sestamibi fused) (mediastinal parathyroid tumors)

Diagnosis and treatment of adrenal tumors

Adrenal tumors are less common than thyroid or parathyroid tumors, and yet they require tremendous skill and expertise to diagnose correctly and treat safely. Many adrenal tumors that should be removed go un-diagnosed and un-treated because they are not recognized or the workup is too complex.

Adrenal tumors are diagnosed and treated, including:

  • Aldosterone Secreting Tumors (Cohn's Syndrome)
  • Cortisol Secreting Tumors (Cushing's Syndrome)
  • Pheochromocytoma (adrenal medulla tumor)
  • Bilateral Adrenal Hyperplasia (Cushing's Disease)
  • Non-Functional Adrenal Adenomas
  • Adrenal Cancer

Types of treatment for adrenal tumors

  • Mini-Back-Scope Adrenalectomy (best surgical option for 90% of adrenal tumors)
  • Open Trans-Abdominal Adrenalectomy (for large adrenal masses and cancers)
  • Trans-Peritoneal Adrenalectomy (for large adrenal masses and cancers)
  • High-Resolution CT Scanning
  • Rapid Adrenal Hormone Analysis
