Thyroid Surgeon Coffs Harbour

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland found at the bottom of the neck. Its primary function is to control the release of hormones Triiodothyronine and Thyroxine or T3 and T4 respectively. These hormones control how the body spends its energy also known as metabolic rate. They also regulate essential bodily functions like cholesterol levels, muscle strength, heart rate, body temperature, menstrual cycles, and even muscle strength.

Too much T3 and T4 in the body will lead to hyperthyroidism, while insufficient amounts will lead to hypothyroidism.

A surgical operation to get rid of the thyroid, also known as thyroidectomy, is needed if your thyroid has certain problems like abnormal growth, goitre, and hyperthyroidism. Professor Stan Sidhu is a thyroid surgeon and specialist in Coffs Harbour whom you can consult for thyroid disorders requiring surgery. You can call him today on (02) 9437 1731 for an appointment.

Parathyroid Surgeon & Specialist in Coffs Harbour

Parathyroid glands are significant because they control the calcium level in the body, especially in the bones and in the blood. These glands are located near the thyroid glands.

You have to consult a parathyroid specialist in Coffs Harbour if you have been diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism. This condition is often the result of a non-cancerous tumour in any of the parathyroid glands. The growth may cause the over release of the parathyroid hormone, which may lead to excessive amount of PTH and calcium in the blood.

Some patients may also experience secondary hyperparathyroidism because they are undergoing dialysis because of kidney failure.

You need a parathyroid surgery specialist if you experience the following signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism:

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

Never resort to your own diagnosis. To arrange a consultation for possible parathyroid gland surgery in Coffs Harbour, you can call Professor Stan Sidhu on (02) 9437 1731.

Adrenal Surgeon & Specialist Coffs Harbour

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 Surgery Specialist Coffs Harbour

Salivary glands produce saliva that is crucial for keeping the mouth moist for easy passage of food particles. The salivary glands have three main pairs: parotid, submandibular, and sublingual.

The most common type of surgery involving salivary glands is parotidectomy or the surgical operation to get rid of the whole parotid glands. It is best for the patient to remove the parotid glands if there is a blockage in the glands, if there are abnormal growth in the glands, or if there is a chronic condition. Usually, the tumours that grow in these gland pairs are benign.

To know the state of health of your salivary glands and to verify if you need a salivary gland tumour surgery in Coffs Harbour, please call (02) 9437 1731 and ask for an appointment with Professor Stan Sidhu.
