  • This Site is not affiliated with a medical center. While all three authors had our surgeries at the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, Florida, we are not in any way affiliated with the Center. We are simply patients who have each had our own unique journey that coincidentally led us there. Each of us independently researched the surgical options available to us at the time and selected that surgical center based on that information.
