At the CENTER for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery in Los Angeles, Babak Larian, MD, FACS, works to provide patients with only the best surgical treatments possible. After a person is diagnosed with a condition of the parathyroid gland and needs to undergo parathyroid surgery, it’s very important to explore all options and treatments to ensure the best possible outcomes.
When a person is diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism, a parathyroid tumor, or parathyroid cancer, the next step in the process is selecting the parathyroid cancer surgery procedure that will provide them with the best results to lead a normal and healthy life. When Dr. Larian sees patients, he often suggests a surgery pioneered by himself known as the minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for patients suffering from benign tumors. When all of your questions and answers have been addressed, a date for your surgery can be set, and you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you couldn’t be in better hands.
On the day of your parathyroid surgery, you will arrive at La Peer Health Systems in Los Angeles, an outpatient surgical center with an immense focus on positive patient care. After being prepped for surgery by Dr. Larian and his team, you will begin the surgical process of removing your parathyroid tumor.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Parathyroidectomy
There are a multitude of benefits that patients requiring parathyroid surgery experience when they elect to undergo a minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, including but not limited to:
- Small Incision
- Less pain
- Less expensive than standard surgery
- Ability for patient to return home same day
- Less risk of complication
In addition to the great benefits listed above, parathyroid surgery can also be performed under local anesthesia, meaning that the entire body isn’t affected, and the patient will be less likely to feel lethargic or ‘out of it’ after the surgery is completed. If a patient wishes to undergo the surgery under general anesthesia, Dr. Larian is happy to provide such accommodations. Upon completion of minimally invasive parathyroid cancer surgery, the patient can rest and regain strength for several hours until they feel up to going home.
