Look Mom No Scar!
Comment: This is a new procedure and patients should consider the fact that the tried and true surgical methods for parathyroid surgery leave a small scars and have surgeons doing them for many years including centers doing only parathyroid surgery. New is good but wait until more data about the success rate and complications before heading for open mouth parathyroid surgery.
