Parathyroid / Parotid Surgery
Parathyroid surgery involves removal of one or more of the parathyroid glands (known as parathyroidectomy) under anaesthetic. There are usually four parathyroid glands, although the exact number may vary from three to seven. They are located in the neck below the Adam’s apple. The parathyroid glands regulate the balance of calcium in the body. Parathyroidectomy is usually done to treat hyperparathyroidism (abnormal over-functioning of the parathyroid glands), in which blood levels of calcium are raised, calcium is lost from the bones, and parathyroid hormone levels are raised.
