The cancer surgeons of Surgical Oncology at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, work with our Nuclear Medicine doctors to offer radioguided parathyroidectomy for patients diagnosed with thyroid disease (primary hyperparathyroidism). Radioguided parathyroidectomy is a less invasive technique that typically allows the surgeon to remove only the diseased area instead of the removal of all four parathyroid glands.
Radioguided parathyroidectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat patients diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism, a chronic thyroid condition that produces too much parathyroid hormone (PTH).
The radioguided parathyroidectomy is performed as an outpatient procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes. Prior to performing the radioguided parathyroidectomy, the Nuclear Medicine doctor injects a radioactive tracer that is absorbed only by the diseased gland. Using a radioisotope scan, the doctor scans the parathyroid area to help locate the abnormal parathyroid before the surgery. Once found, an incision about 1.5-inches in length is made to remove the diseased parathyroid gland.
Radioguided parathyroidectomy is typically the best treatment option for treating patients with primary hyperthyroidism.
