Resolved Question:

I have just been diagnosed by my GP as having Hyperparathyroidism and been referred to my local hospital. I am awaiting an initial appointment with an endocrinologist.

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
What is your local hospital?
This is a very easy surgery so I can find someone there

My local hospital is 'Royal Derby'. I need a surgeon who performs 50+ parathyroid operations per year and is able to perform the 'minimally-invasive radioguided parathyroid surgery'.

Thank You for your help.

You will need to contact the "endocrine surgery" department at Royal Derby. They have a teaching faculty run department. They will be quite capable of handling this. Here is the link with telephone number.
