The thyroid gland in the neck is the body’s “thermostat”, controlling the body’s rate of metabolism. Surgical conditions of the thyroid include nodules or tumors as well as hyperthyroidism. Our experts perform diagnostic tests such as painless “Fine Needle Aspirations” in our offices under ultrasound guidance. If surgery is necessary, we are experts in this area. We utilize small incisions and routinely use the latest monitoring equipment to protect the important laryngeal nerves.
The nearby parathyroid glands control the body’s important calcium equilibrium. These glands sometimes hyperfunction, causing the calcium level to dangerously rise. Surgery is then necessary to remove the offending gland. Our SSNJ experts perform these surgeries using the latest localizing techniques to avoid large incisions and insure a quick recovery.
Feel free to discuss any thyroid or parathyroid issues you may have with an SSNJ surgeon near you.
