Neck conditions that require surgical intervention typically have to do with the parathyroid or thyroid. The parathyroid is a pea-sized gland that makes parathyroid hormone (PTH) which helps your body keep the right balance of calcium and phosphorous. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that makes hormones and controls the rate of many activities in the body.
The experts at Pediatric Surgeons of Phoenix are specially trained at the surgical intervention for parathyroid glands, thyroglossyl duct remnants, and thyroid disease in children and adolescents.
