After numerous blood tests and scans, I have been diagonosed with a Parathyroid Tumor. I would like to see Dr. Norman in Tampa since he seems to be the only one that specializes in this Minimally invasive procedure. I was told of a doctor in the Miami area that does the parathyroid surgery with the DaVinci Robot. Anyone else hear about this?
I had a look at the Da Vinci surgery website and found this doctor....
Dr. Giovana Thomas, MD, FACS
Address: University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center
1475 NW 12th Avenue
Miami, Florida 33136
Specialty: Head and Neck
Head & Neck Surgical Oncology
Just to add, there is a Dr Laurence Gordon at the The New York Center for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery who performs minimally invasive parathyroid surgery. Someone mentioned Dr Norman wouldn't accept their insurance and was looking for another surgeon who would. I read The New York Center for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery accepts all major insurance companies.
