The pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands form the endocrine system. These organs produce and regulate many of our hormones necessary for the body function. When something is out of the whack in the endocrine system, it makes you feel terrible. If in case the tumor develops in any of the organs, you could suffer from severe illness such as cancer and can even lead to death.
The surgery is another complex procedure. The specialists of endocrine surgery in Dubai-based Thyroid Surgery UAE Department at Al Zahra treat patients with endocrine conditions effectively and safely. The minimally invasive endocrine surgeries we perform include:
Robotic Surgery – If there’s a tumor in the tail portion of the pancreas, robotic surgery could be highly beneficial. This decreases the risk of complications which can arise due to traditional pancreas surgery. Unlike laparoscopic surgery, robotic technology helps us see the tumors and tissues even better. Robotic surgery allows us to navigate around the tumors and blood vessels.
Pre-operative Ultrasonography – In primary hyperparathyroidism, one of the four parathyroid glands in the neck secretes excessive hormones. This leads to low bone density and osteoporosis. Treatment often requires removal of only the abnormal gland. Now, this abnormal gland before surgery is located through ultrasonography. The many benefits of pre-operative ultrasonography include small incision, less pain and faster recovery for our patients.
Intraoperative Hormone Blood Test – When the patient is undergoing surgery under the effect of the general anesthesia, a blood sample is taken to conduct an intraoperative hormone blood test. These blood samples taken twice or thrice help to know the hormone level and reduce the need for multiple surgeries.
Intraoperative Nerve Monitoring – While conducting the neck surgery, a monitor is being used to assess laryngeal nerve function and reduce the risk of voice changes. This monitoring also reduces the risk of vocal cords being paralyzed or damaged. If there occurs any problem in the voice, this surgery makes sure that your voice will heal and get back to normal.
