Leading Central Coast Thyroid Surgeon

The thyroid gland is located at the bottom of your neck. Shaped like a butterfly, its function is to release the hormones T3 (Triiodothyronine) and T4 (Thyroxine). These hormones regulate the body’s metabolism or how we spend energy as well as important physiological functions such as:

  • Body weight
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Muscle strength
  • Heart rate
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Breathing
  • Body temperature

Increased levels of T3 and T4 in the body results to hyperthyroidism, while decreased levels of these hormones could result to hypothyroidism.

Thyroidectomy or thyroid surgery on the Central Coast is required for people who have thyroid problems such as tumours, swollen glands (goiter), and hyperthyroidism.

Parathyroid Surgeon on the Central Coast

Parathyroid glands control the level of calcium in the body, specifically in the blood and bones. These glands are located behind the thyroid glands.

You may need a Central Coast parathyroid surgeon if you are a local resident confirmed to have a primary hyperparathyroidism that is usually caused by a benign growth in any of the four parathyroid glands. The tumour may trigger the overproduction of PTH that could result to increased level of calcium and PTH in the blood.

Patients who are undergoing dialysis because of kidney failure may also develop hyperparathyroidism. This will be categorized as secondary hyperparathyroidism as the condition is not caused by the abnormality in the parathyroid glands. The inflammation of the glands is a complication of kidney failure. If you are in this condition, you need a parathyroid surgeon to regulate increased levels of PTH in your blood.

The common signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism are the following:

  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Nausea/abdominal pain
  • Excessive urination
  • Bone and joint pain
  • Depression / Anxiety
  • Kidney stones
  • Osteoporosis

Self-diagnosis is not recommended. If you want to confirm the need for parathyroid gland surgery on the Central Coast, you can request an appointment with Professor Stan Sidhu. Call us on (02) 9437 1731.

Adrenal Surgeon on the Central Coast

Located at the top of each kidney, adrenal glands release hormones, which help the body to regulate blood pressure, burn fat and protein, regulate sugar in the blood, and respond to emergency situations. The adrenal glands release aldosterone,cortisol, androgens and catecholamines.

Numerous health conditions that have negative side effects could happen to you if you have tumours in your adrenal glands. This includes health conditions such as Conn’s Syndrome , Cushing’s Syndrome and phaeochromocytoma  which could be effectively cured through adrenal surgery Sydney.

To prevent experiencing negative side effects of tumours in the adrenal glands such as hypertension, sexual dysfunction, obesity, and diabetes, Professor Stan Sidhu is an endocrine surgeon who is expert at performing adrenal tumour surgery to take out one or both adrenal glands using a keyhole approach.

Like with most malignant tumours, the treatment for adrenal tumour should be only done by specialist endocrine surgeons like Professor Sidhu. The standard treatment is the keyhole  removal of the tumour or affected tissue. In some cases, there may be a need for an open adrenalectomy or complete removal of the entire adrenal gland.

For more information about your adrenal gland health and to confirm if you need adrenal surgery in Sydney, you can call Professor Stan Sidhu at (02) 9437 1731.

Salivary Glands Surgeon on the Central Coast

Our salivary glands are responsible for the production of saliva, which keeps the mouth moist and initially breaks down our food for easy passage. There are three main pairs of salivary glands: the submandibular, sublingual, and the parotid glands.

The most popular type of salivary glands surgery on the Central Coast is parotidectomy or the elimination of the whole parotid gland or the largest pair. The salivary gland surgeon will remove the parotid if there is a blockage in the glands, the patient is suffering from a chronic disease affecting or causing abnormality in the salivary glands, or if there is a tumour in the glands. More often than not, the tumours that grow in the parotid glands are non-cancerous.

To confirm if you need a Central Cost salivary gland tumour surgeon or if you want to learn more about your salivary glands, you can arrange an appointment with Professor Stan Sidhu on (02) 9437 1731.
