Treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism depends on the underlying cause. Kidney disease is the most common cause of secondary hyperparathyroidism. In some people where secondary hyperparathyroidism is caused by kidney disease, medication may be prescribed to manage the condition.
There are different types of Parathyroidectomy. Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy: You may receive a shot of a very small amount of radioactive tracer before this surgery. This helps highlight the diseased glands. This will allow your surgeon to use a special probe, like a Geiger counter, to locate the parathyroid gland. Your surgeon will make a small cut on one side of your neck, and then remove the diseased gland through it. This procedure takes about 1 hour. Endoscopic parathyroidectomy: Your surgeon will make two or three small cuts in the front of your neck and one cut above the top of your collarbone to remove any diseased parathyroid glands discovered with the endocscopy. This method reduces visible scarring, pain, and recovery time.
