Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery Melbourne

Endocrine surgery involves surgery of the hormone-producing glands (endocrine organs) of the body. The thyroid and parathyroid are two closely related glands in the neck. The thyroid and parathyroid hormones play essential roles in keeping you healthy. Thyroid and parathyroid are susceptible to many diseases which require surgery for their effective cure. I have expertise in the management of thyroid and parathyroid glands disorders.

Thyroid Surgery In Melbourne

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that lines the front of the windpipe, just below the voice box. The thyroid gland uses iodine from food to make thyroid hormones that regulate how the body uses energy. The thyroid is susceptible to under and overproduction of its hormone. It is also by far the most common endocrine gland to develop benign and cancerous growths. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for most thyroid diseases which has become very specialised in modern times. I offer assessment and treatment of all thyroid conditions. I work in close association with expert medical and radiology colleagues for the best outcome.

Parathyroid Surgery In Melbourne

The parathyroid glands are four tiny glands located behind the thyroid gland. The parathyroid glands produce a hormone that helps control the amount of calcium in the blood. Overproduction of the parathyroid hormone is a largely under-diagnosed condition that contributes to significant morbidity. Assessment and management of parathyroid gland abnormality need a multidisciplinary approach with the close collaboration of experienced radiologists, medical endocrinologists, and parathyroid surgeons in Melbourne. I am pleased to offer a modern parathyroid surgery service in Melbourne backed by the current scientific evidence.
