What Is Endocrine Surgery?

Endocrine surgery is a medical operation that experts use for the treatment of various diseases of the endocrine glands, including the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal gland. An endocrine gland is a tissue that releases hormones that travel through the bloodstream to act in other parts of the body. 

Endocrine surgery procedures

 are used to treat various endocrine conditions that medicines cannot control. The most common of these procedures are:

Thyroid Surgery

Partial or total thyroidectomy is a procedure conducted to remove either a portion or all, of the thyroid gland. It is performed through a small, cosmetically pleasing incision in the neck. The most common reasons for thyroid surgery include cancer, hyperthyroidism, and goiter (nodules).

Like many other operations, thyroid surgery is a meticulous procedure that requires utmost care and experience. It is important that the surgery is done by expert surgeons to reduce the risks of bleeding permanent change in voice.

Parathyroid Surgery

Parathyroid surgery is a procedure that is performed in order to remove one or more of the parathyroid glands. The human body has four rice-sized parathyroid glands located behind the thyroid gland in the central neck. These glands are responsible for the secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH), which controls the body’s calcium levels.

These glands play an important role in the body. However, they can become overactive and cause a multitude of different symptoms, including fatigue, difficulty concentrating, constipation, abdominal pain, muscle/bone pain, osteopenia (bone weakness/bone loss), kidney stones, and heartburn.

Adrenal Gland Surgery

The adrenal glands are located just above the kidneys and are responsible for producing hormones that regular salt balance, steroid hormones, and adrenaline. Overproduction of these hormones can be harmful to the body, and the only definitive management option in these situations is the surgical removal of the adrenal gland that is the problem.

Tumors of the adrenal gland are also sometimes treated with adrenal gland removal. Benign tumors of the adrenal gland are common, so not all adrenal tumors require removal.

The adrenal gland can be removed using minimally invasive surgical techniques. Robotic-assisted and laparoscopic surgery provides excellent treatment options with less pain, smaller incisions, and quicker return to normal life with less complications.
