Above all else, Dr. Larian values the bond he has with his patients. He firmly believes that there is more to it than just prescribing medications and performing surgery. In his opinion, the most important thing is to earn the trust of his patients. This allows Dr. Larian to build fruitful and lasting relationships, which in turn will help him optimize and individualize treatment options.
Dr. Larian knows how self-conscious one can be about surgical scars and other visible effects of surgery, and that is why he has decided to go above and beyond to limit the long-term signs of parathyroid surgery.
Thanks to technological and medical advancements, minimally invasive procedures are changing the way people view surgery. Patients who choose less invasive procedures over conventional surgery may no longer face lengthy recoveries and hospital stays. Instead, they are able to get back to the things that are important to them much sooner and safer.
Minimally invasive procedures, such as the parathyroidectomy, focus on the use of state-of-the-art technology and top of the line surgical equipment. When performing a minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, Dr. Larian creates a small, dime-sized incision that allows the use of a miniature camera and specialized instruments to perform the procedure. Because of his approach, there is no need for a large, conventional incision. This, in turn, means less scarring.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIP)
The minimally invasive approach that Dr. Larian takes is designed to get you back to the things you enjoy the most as quickly as possible. In fact, the minimally invasive approach has been proven to provide outcomes equivalent to those of conventional surgery, but has several significant benefits over conventional surgery on top of that, such as:
Less Recovery Time
Smaller incisions and scars mean that your body can heal much faster.
Shorter Hospital Stay
Almost all patients will leave the medical center within hours of surgery.
Almost all incisions are so small that most people probably will not even notice them after the incisions have healed. As a result, you will simply not have to deal with large scars.
Because it is less invasive than conventional surgery, there is usually less pain involved.
The incision is made in the natural folds of the skin, which in turn creates a smaller and much less noticeable scar.
Less Tissue Trauma
Because there is less tissue trauma with the minimally invasive approach, there is also less scar tissue under the surface.
The closing technique for the procedure is different because the sutures are less inflammatory. This, in turn, means less post-operative discomfort.
