Summit Surgical Specialists are dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care to our patients with surgical disorders of the thyroid gland, parathyroid glands and the adrenal glands. We routinely use intra-operative rapid parathyroid hormone levels and radio-guided techniques, which help to ensure the operation is minimally invasive. Our focus is not only on a safe and effective operation, but also on minimizing pain, improving recovery times and minimizing scar formation. With an active interest in endocrine surgery, our providers strive to include both the science and the art in the way we provide care for our patients.
Specialized techniques used:
- NIMS: An electronic method of locating and monitoring the recurrent lyrngeal nerve during surgery
- Interoperative PTH: A laboratory method to rapidly determine the completeness of parathyroid adenoma removal
- Neoprobe Targeted Surgery: A radio nucleotide-aided method of locating parathyroid glands and tumors
