High blood calcium, hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid gland problems, low vitamin D, and parathyroid surgery! Everything you want to know about parathyroid disease on VIDEO.
Featured Flicks are 3-10 minute videos with detailed information on many parathyroid subjects. Enjoy!

Learn where the parathyroid glands are and what the parathyroid glands do.
Shows how 1,445 endocrinologists did workups on more than 10,000 patients with high calcium levels, why intermittent normal calcium levels are ok, and very informative data on negative sestamibi scans and negative ultrasounds.
Inside the OR with Dr. Norman as he performs a parathyroid mini surgery under 13 minutes. This state of the art parathyroid operation evaluates all four parathyroid glands, curing hyperparathyroidism.
Learn how Calcium is affected by parathyroid glands and how parathyroid glands are the control system for the levels of calcium in your body.
Dr. Politz from the Norman Parathyroid Center presents a discussion on NIH criteria for diagnosing hyperparathyroidism to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
During parathyroid surgery, Drs. Norman and Politz us the probe to measure the parathyroid hormone NOT to localize the tumor. The probe measures the amount of parathyroid homone being produced by the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid tumor has higher measurements than a normal parathyroid gland.
Dr. Norman explains sestamibi scans and why they are often negative. Sestamibi scans are usually wrong and far too much emphasis is placed on sestamibi scans!
Endocrinologist tells others about what tests are needed to diagnose primary hyperparathyroidism, then asks leading experts about cure rate and percentage of patients that have malignancy.
Dr. Norman gives parathyroid patients a tour of the new Parathyroid Palace! We’ll show you how to get there, where to park, and let you see inside this beautiful center where thousands of parathyroid operations occur annually.
