Our Approach To Hyperparathyroidism in Adults

What Sets Us Apart

The parathyroid glands are located just behind the butterfly-shaped thyroid gland in the neck. In people with hyperparathyroidism, these glands secrete too much parathyroid hormone, causing elevated amounts of calcium in the blood. This can ultimately lead to health conditions such as osteoporosis, bone fractures, kidney stones, or kidney damage. 

NYU Langone experts help you to manage this condition with the most effective treatment options, including medication and surgery. These experts include endocrinologists, nuclear medicine specialists, and surgeons. 

NYU Langone surgeons are considered high-volume providers, which means they perform more endocrine surgeries than physicians in most other medical centers in the New York area. The invaluable collective experience of NYU Langone’s specialists, combined with the use of the latest and most sophisticated equipment, leads to fewer complications and better outcomes.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Depending on the severity and the type of hyperparathyroidism, our doctors may recommend close observation or medication to manage the condition. If surgery is needed to remove one or more of the parathyroid glands, our experts work together closely, using advanced imaging technology in planning and performing the procedure.
