    MIRP surgeon for hyperparathyroidism

    Using my hubby's user name, I have been recently diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism. Surgery has been recommended. I want to have the minimally invasive surgery. Does anyone know a surgeon in the SF Bay Area that has performed this particular surgery?

    Do you know the name of this organization? That would be helpful.

    I've been reading these message boards recently re: MIRP and saw that someone found 2008 post about a Dr Babak Larian (asst Shaye) in Beverly Hills, Ca. I hope that helps even though it's not in the bay area. You can also check the American Society of Endocrine Surgeons to see who is a member.

    Re: MIRP surgeon for hyperparathyroidism

    Thank you, I have found a surgeon at UCSF who actually is very experienced and teaches a technique for the surgery. He lectures all over the country. He was recommended by several MDs. Dr Duh. My surgery is October 17.

    Re: MIRP surgeon for hyperparathyroidism

    I just had a parathyroidectomy at UCSF, Dr. Gosnell. Not the MIRP that I read about on Dr. Norman's site but his information helped me decide that even though my calcium levels weren't that high for the past 2 years I knew I felt terrible. It's been less than a month and I tell you I feel terrific! Glad I didn't waste any more time looking for MIRP surgeon.
