Parathyroid glands: Clinic helps to avoid long-term consequences

At Schoen Clinic, our experienced consultants have been successfully treating thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal gland diseases for years. If the parathyroid glands are underactive, medication is usually sufficient. Overactivity can be cured with surgery in 95 to 98 per cent of all cases.

Conservative treatment methods

Therapy for underactive parathyroid glands

If the thyroid gland is underactive, the underproduced hormone can be injected. However, parathyroid hormone cannot be functionally replaced; only the effects can be treated. Long-term therapy involves the lifelong intake of vitamin D and calcium.

Surgical treatment methods

Therapy for parathyroid overactivity

If the enlarged parathyroid gland has been identified as the cause, parathyroid gland surgery will help in most cases. You will find a well-rehearsed team for this that plans the procedure right down to the smallest detail.

Only if the patient is too old or ill for parathyroid gland surgery do we alternatively rely on osteoporosis drugs, which are intended to inhibit bone resorption and lower the calcium level.
