Endocrine Disease Treatment Innovations
Minimally invasive thyroid surgery
Traditionally, thyroid surgery leaves a scar up to 3.5 inches long on a person’s neck. CSG now offers minimally invasive thyroid surgery that uses a much smaller incision when appropriate, but still allows for safe removal. For many patients, having the option of a much smaller scar reduces their anxiety about surgery.
Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy
When compared to traditional parathyroid surgery, this approach leads to lower costs, shorter hospital stays and equally high cure rates with low complication rates. In addition, patients appreciate that the procedure can result in a much smaller scar.
Recurrent nerve monitoring during thyroid & parathyroid surgery
Identifying and protecting the recurrent nerve puts patients more at ease knowing that their voice will function well after surgery.
In-office thyroid & parathyroid ultrasound & biopsy
Having this service in the CSG office is convenient for patients and enables them to avoid a trip to a facility.
Intraoperative use of the rapid PTH assay
This innovation enables confirmation of successful parathyroid surgery.
