The Norman Parathyroid Center is located in Tampa, Florida (USA) and is the world’s leading parathyroid treatment center, performing approximately 50 parathyroid operations weekly (2500 annually) on patients from all over the world. Our operations are performed at the Parathyroid Center at Tampa General Hospital, a beautiful new facility overlooking the waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico dedicated to parathyroid surgery only. Our hospital and our doctors are rated in the top 1% in the nation by a number of organizations. There is a consultation fee to be evaluated by our expert doctors, which is separate from the cost of the operation and not billable to your insurance. Our standard procedure consists of a complete review of your records, a consultation by phone, and then a single visit to our center for about 4-5 hours. During this one visit to our center, you will meet with two of the world’s 4-most experienced parathyroid surgeons, have a sestamibi scan in our own nuclear medicine facility, have your operation, meet with the surgeons after the operation, and then leave the hospital. Your family can stay with you during most of this 4-5 hour process. You can travel home by car within a few hours of the operation, or by plane the following day. After 24 hours you will have no restrictions on activities. There are no stitches to take out and you simply follow up with your local doctor in 1-2 months time. You will receive a phone call from one of the doctors the night of the operation, and you will have all of the doctor’s home and cell phone numbers. We work with several local hotels and will provide transportation to and from these hotels. We evaluate all four parathyroid glands in almost all our operations to assure the highest long-term cure rate of over 99% and our average operating time is about 18 minutes. A video of this operation is included in the video section of this app. For more information about becoming our patient visit: http://parathyroid.com/Parathyroid-Surgeon.htm
