I may have to have surgery to remove one or more parathyroid glands and am looking for a surgeon near Winston-Salem or Greensboro, NC who does the less invasive surgery. Are there any located near here?

i personally dont know any endocrine surgeon in that region. The following weblink allows you to search for endocrinologists in your area.

Contacting one of them would be helpful. They would be the ones referring to parathyroid surgeons

It appears you are well versed with your condition. However if you need to learn more, this weblink is useful
