I had hypercalcemia and low vitamin D for over 10 years. A year ago I went to see my endocrinologist who said my calcium level was dangerously high. An option to correct it was surgery. I was referred to Dr. Livhits and my thyroid was biopsied.
Surgery was recommended. I was glad it was minimally invasive. It was the easiest thing I've ever done. It was easier than going to the dentist! There was no after effects other than a sore throat for one day. I had no ill effects and virtually no scar. I am thrilled with the outcome!
