The cancer doctors of Surgical Oncology at Mercy in Baltimore perform advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures to manage endocrine tumors of the adrenal glands, thyroid, parathyroid and pancreas. Our surgical oncologists work closely with Mercy’s endocrinologists to diagnose and treat parathyroid disease.
Parathyroid glands are four small glands that are typically located behind the thyroid gland or around the jaw or neck. The glands secrete PHT hormones that regulate calcium exchange between your blood and bones. If the glands are overactive and remove too much calcium from your bones you may develop parathyroid disease or hyperparathyroidism.
In early stages parathyroid disease may not present symptoms. Later stage symptoms may include:
Endocrine doctors can perform tests to measure the hormone levels produced by your parathyroid glands along with calcium hormones to determine parathyroid disease.
Surgical removal is the primary treatment for parathyroid disease. Our doctors offer minimally invasive procedures like radioguided parathyroidectomy for patients with hyperparathyroidism, laparoscopic surgery to remove adrenal tumors, and thyroid surgery.
