Besides Tampa, FL, what other top places/centers for parathyroid surge

Posted by musicbart @musicbart, Feb 23 4:29pm

I know many here have gone to the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, FL. But what are some other top centers/places for parathyroid surgery, places/centers having good outcomes and where the surgeon(s) do many of these parathyroid surgeries? If you know one or some, please state the actual name of the place/center/institution rather than just the city (but both are of course fine too). Thanks

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Diabetes & Endocrine System Support Group.

i had mine done at Munson Medical Center. in Traverse City, MI. it's in the top 100 best hospitals.

Try Mayo clinic. Be sure to ask will you check all 4 glands during surgery. Is the surgery minimally invasive? (big scar or little scar). How many of these surgeries do you do a week? The more the better. Is it done as an out patient? Light anesthesia or heavy?
