Dr. Babak Larian, parathyroid expert, discusses minimally invasive surgical techniques and less scarring

I know how self-conscious one can be about surgical scars and other visible effects of surgery, which is why I have decided to go above and beyond to limit the long-term signs of parathyroid surgery.

Thanks to technological and medical advancements, minimally invasive procedures are changing the way people view surgery. Patients who are candidates for less invasive procedures over conventional surgery may no longer face lengthy recoveries and hospital stays. Instead, they are able to get back to the things that are important to them much sooner and safer.

“I know how self-conscious one can be about surgical scars and other visible effects of surgery, which is why I have decided to go above and beyond to limit the long-term signs of parathyroid surgery,” says Babak Larian, MD, FACS, a Beverly Hills parathyroid specialist.

Minimally invasive procedures, such as the parathyroidectomy, focus on the use of state-of-the-art technology and top of the line surgical equipment. When skilled experts perform a minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, the surgeon creates a small, dime-sized incision that allows the use of a miniature camera and specialized instruments to perform the procedure.

“I deliberately take this approach to minimize the long-term effects of the surgery. By taking a minimally invasive approach, there is no need for a large, conventional incision. This, in turn, means that there will be less scarring at the skin level, as well under the surface,” says Dr. Larian.

The minimally invasive parathyroid procedure is designed to get the patient back to the things they enjoy the most as quickly as possible. The minimally invasive approach has been proven to provide outcomes equivalent to those of conventional surgery, but has several significant benefits over conventional surgery on top of that.

“The minimally invasive approach means less recovery time, a no hospital stay, and less scarring, pain, and tissue trauma,” says Dr. Larian.
