About us

Patients with thyroid and parathyroid conditions are treated in the Department of Endocrine Surgery at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden. Here, both functional disorders, as well as benign and malignant tumours of these two organs appear. Today, however, even malignant tumour conditions of the thyroid gland and parathyroid gland, when identified early, are treatable in many cases.

The Centre of Excellence for Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden collaborates very closely with the attending GPs, internists, endocrinologists and nuclear medicine specialists. The necessity of a surgical procedure is reviewed together within the team. Should surgery, in fact, be required, the procedure is planned and then performed in the Department of Endocrine Surgery. The medical team at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden possesses long-standing experience in the surgical treatment of thyroid and parathyroid conditions.

The specialist fields of the Department of Endocrine Surgery in Wiesbaden include, above all, surgery to malignant thyroid growths, minimally invasive surgery to the thyroid gland and parathyroid gland, and repeated therapeutic procedures. In addition, Dr Saalabian at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden is a bona fide specialist in the field of thyroid gland elastography. Using this technique, the behaviour and the status of the thyroid nodules are assessed preoperatively, i.e. prior to the procedure.

The facilities in the Department of Endocrine Surgery at the DKD HELIOS Hospital Wiesbaden are state of the art and are guaranteed so that all surgery can be performed to the highest standard of quality. Some of the techniques and apparatuses used routinely are e.g. intraoperative neuromonitoring, intraoperative ultrasound, ultrasonic scalpel, rapid parathormone assay and video assistance during minimally invasive procedures. Both the equipment and the surgical expertise and experience of the specialists of the Department of Endocrine Surgery at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden are the guarantors of successful and low-complication surgery. In cosmetic matters, which certainly play an important role, especially in procedures on the throat, the precise planning of the incision and the plastic surgery suturing technique of the specialists under Dr Saalabian is particularly worthwhile.
