Parathyroid tumor care at Nuvance Health: Why choose us?
Nuvance Health is home to one of the region's few fellowship-trained endocrine surgeons. The specialist has special training and experience in treating parathyroid tumors, including cancer. We offer more of the services you need, including sophisticated testing and treatments, close to home. Highlights of our program include:
Diagnosis and assessment:
We use a variety of techniques to determine what’s causing the abnormal calcium levels. If we suspect it’s cancer, we take extra steps to identify the affected parathyroid gland. These efforts help you receive care that meets your needs.
Minimally invasive surgery:
If we suspect cancer, surgery is usually needed. We surgically remove the affected gland and nearby tissue through a small incision. This approach minimizes disruption to healthy tissue, easing your recovery. The small incision leaves a tiny scar that’s barely noticeable.
Experience with other rare endocrine disorders:
The team specializes in treating other types of endocrine tumors, some of which are rare. You receive trusted care that reflects the latest research. Learn more about endocrine neoplasia.
Annual monitoring enables us to detect the early signs of parathyroid tumors that recur after treatment. Monitoring typically includes a blood test. If we find abnormal calcium levels, we may recommend additional testing, including imaging studies.
You receive ongoing monitoring in a convenient location. If you already have an endocrinologist, we are available as necessary to answer questions. If you do not have an endocrinologist, the team may continue providing your care.
