Thyroid Surgery Sydney – what you need to know

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland situated at the bottom of your neck. It is responsible for releasing the hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which control your metabolic rate or how the body consumes energy. The thyroid regulates important body functions such as:

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

Too much T3 and T4 in the body leads to hyperthyroidism while too low T3 and T4 leads to hypothyroidism.

Undergoing thyroid surgery or thyroidectomy in Sydney is recommended for patients who are suspected with thyroid conditions including benign and malignant tumours, enlarged thyroid glands (goitre), and overactive thyroid.

Parathyroid Surgery Sydney - What You Need to Know

Parathyroid glands are the small glands located in the neck behind the thyroid gland. These glands regulate the amount of calcium in the body including the amount of calcium in the blood as well as in the bones.

The main reason for requiring parathyroid surgery is when you are diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism, which is often caused by a non-cancerous growth in one of the four parathyroid glands. The abnormal growth produces excessive parathyroid (PTH), which often leads to high levels of PTH and calcium in the blood.

You can also develop hyperparathyroidism if you are on dialysis because of kidney failure. This is known as secondary hyperparathyroidism, because the problem does not come from the parathyroid glands, which could be enlarged as a complication of kidney failure. This case requires parathyroid surgery to control the high levels of PTH in the blood.

The signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism include:

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

Adrenal Surgery Sydney – What You Need To Know

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 Sydney – What You Need To Know

As you may already know, salivary glands produce saliva that keeps the mouth moist. But its main role is to initially break down your food, specifically carbohydrates with amylase. Saliva helps in lubricating the digestive tract for easy passage of food. There are three primary pairs of salivary glands – the sublingual, submandibular, and the parotid glands.

The most common type of surgery involving the salivary glands is the parotidectomy or the surgical removal of the parotid gland, which is the largest pair of salivary glands. The parotid is often removed because of an obstruction in the salivary gland, a chronic disease or an abnormal growth or tumour. Most tumours in the parotid glands are benign.

For more information about your salivary glands to arrange salivary gland tumour surgery in Sydney, you can call Professor Stan Sidhu on (02) 9437 1731.
