Under light anesthesia – sometimes a local numbing medication and a relaxant - the surgeon makes a very tiny incision at the site of the diseased parathyroid gland. The gland is removed, and the site is closed using absorbable stitches. It is covered with a steri-strip (surgical tape that protects the site).The procedure is quick, taking about 20 to 30 minutes.
One tiny incision that is about 2/3 of an inch is made at the site of the diseased gland.
You will most likely go home within a few hours of the surgery.
Most patients are fully recovered within a week. You will need to keep the surgery site dry, so no water-based sports will be allowed for about a month.
