  • Parathyroid Surgery - Your Surgery and Recovery at Home (Fraser Health) [English] Public

    You are having surgery (an operation) to remove 1 or more of your parathyroid glands (parathyroidectomy). The parathyroid glands are located right behind your thyroid gland in your neck. These glands produce parathyroid hormone. This hormone controls the levels of calcium in the body. These glands are usually removed if they are making too much parathyroid hormone because the gland is not working properly or a growth (tumour) that could be cancer or not (benign).
