Quote of the Month - October
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you, your entire staff, the nurses, anesthesiologists and everyone else at Mt. Sinai for making my experience there truly wonderful. Everything from the promptness of my visits to the time and care you and your staff demonstrated was really remarkable – especially in this day and age of “industrialized medicine”.
It’s only 24 hours since my procedure and I’m back at work and feeling great. I feel blessed to have had you as my advocate as I traveled the road from symptoms to confirmed diagnosis and now ultimately healing. I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I am.
Thanks again to you and your team for being so terrific!
Quote of the Month - November
I was recently diagnosed with a higher than normal calcium level and a Sestamibi scan showed what appeared to be a parathyroid adenoma. After some research on the internet, I decided to go directly to an expert in the field to get an opinion about surgery. I made the initial visit to Dr. Inabnet at the impressive Mt. Sinai Hess Center. The registration staff were very professional and I only waited a few minutes before being led to an immaculately clean exam room. An associate doctor performed a preliminary examination that included a comprehensive review of my medical history and digital ultrasound of my thyroid and parathyroid glands. Immediately after that, Dr. Inabnet came in and introduced himself. He put me at ease right away with his patient-friendly personality and intelligent manner. After reviewing the ultrasound images and my history, he carefully recommended minimally invasive surgery to remove the adenoma. Approximately 1 week later, I arrived at the surgical center and spent only a small amount of time in a nicely appointed waiting room before being led in for surgery. The whole procedure was performed using local anesthesia. After an additional two hours in a comfortable recovery area, I was cleared to go home. Amazingly, I had almost no pain and took only one Tylenol later that day. My calcium level returned to normal and the small incision mark on my neck is disappearing over time.
In summary, I feel that this surgical experience rates among the best that can be had. Dr. Inabnet and his support staff are very courteous, professional, and friendly. During a follow-up visit several weeks later I was again treated in the same wonderful manner. I would be happy to recommend this team of people to anyone looking for this or a related surgical treatment.
The Endocrine Surgery Parathyroid Center is a key component of the Endocrine Neoplasia Program, which resides in the Division of Metabolic, Endocrine and Minimally Invasive Surgery at the world-renowned Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. Highlights of the program include:
Parathyroid CT scan
Mount Sinai Parathyroid CT Scanning: Our most accurate preoperative localizing study. Ideal for patients with negative parathyroid sestamibi scans. Have your study performed the same day as your consultation.
