Thyroid Surgeon in Los Angeles

Dr. Michel Babajanian: Thyroid Surgeon in Los AngelesOver the past few decades, thanks to significant advances in diagnostic methods and improved knowledge and technical skills of physicians and surgeons, earlier detection of thyroid and parathyroid tumors and disorders has become a reality. Breakthrough advances in surgical technology, along with state-of-the-art training of thyroid and parathyroid surgeons, have revolutionized successful outcomes of surgical treatment of tumors and other thyroid and parathyroid gland disorders. Today, surgical expertise and technological innovations allow for successful surgical procedures with minimal risks and complications when performed by expert and experienced thyroid and parathyroid surgeons.

Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeons, by virtue of their rigorous and focused training in the evaluation and surgical treatment of tumors and disorders of the head and neck, are best suited to diagnose and treat benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous) tumors of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. When surgery is indicated and necessary, Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeons who specialize in thyroid and parathyroid surgery perform the entire gamut of surgical procedures required for eradication of these tumors. Thanks to extensive training and experience of the surgeons and state-of-the-art surgical techniques, such as minimally invasive endoscopic and video assisted surgery and the use of intraoperative vocal cord nerve monitoring and parathyroid hormone assays, surgery of thyroid and parathyroid glands is performed safely and successfully. In many instances if certain critieria are met, thyroid and parathyroid surgery can be performed safely and efficiently on an outpatient basis without the need for hospitalization. These criteria are set by a panel of expert surgeons and endocrinologists from the American Thyroid Association (Click here to view article). Dr. Babajanian’s office is equipped with a state of the art high resolution ultrasound machine. The ultrasound is used frequently for preoperative evaluation of thyroid and parathyroid tumors as well as for improving accuracy and safety of needle aspiration biopsies. We believe in empowering our patients to fully participate in managing their own care. To that end, our vision is to provide patients with an individualized yet comprehensive treatment plan in direct coordination and communication with other medical specialists, such as Endocrinologists, Thoracic Surgeons, Radiologists, Oncologists and Pathologists. Most importantly and above all, we believe that patients receive the best possible outcome when such expert, state-of-the-art surgical treatment is combined with the utmost compassion and highest ethical standards.

Providing expert and compassionate care in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery in Los Angeles since 1993, Dr. Michel Babajanian is an expert parathyroid and thyroid surgeon. His training as a medical student at UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, and his subsequent rigorous surgical training as an Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeon under the supervision and guidance of premier thyroid and parathyroid surgeons at Mount Sinai Medical Center have been the cornerstones of his successful professional career. He is board-certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAOHNS), and is an active Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), as well as the American Thyroid Association (ATA). During his many years of practice, Dr. Babajanian has accumulated comprehensive experience in all surgical techniques required for thyroid and parathyroid surgery, including partial or complete thyroidectomy, parathyroidectomy, all variations of neck lymph node dissections and all other surgical procedures as may be indicated and necessary. In addition to managing a busy, full-time private practice at his clinics in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills in Southern California, he has also traveled extensively to many world-renowned medical centers, and has spent time in other US and European cities with pioneer thyroid and parathyroid surgeons to learn and use breakthrough and innovative surgical techniques such as minimally invasive, video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) and parathyroidectomy (MIVAP). Combining his busy surgical practice, focused primarily on thyroid and parathyroid surgery, with his continuing efforts to introduce advanced and minimally invasive techniques has allowed him to perform the required surgeries with safety and accuracy. Thanks to his extensive training background in plastic and reconstructive surgical techniques and meticulous attention to details, his surgeries have consistently resulted in the smallest incisions and least visible surgical scars possible, thus minimizing both the hospital stay and recovery time for patients who have graciously entrusted their care to Dr. Michel Babajanian.
