Carol Borge...
I would like to thank Dr. Ludwick and his tremendous staff for the exemplary way they took care of me before, during and after my Thyroid procedure. Dr. Ludwick is a great surgeon! The entire staff is “hands-on” and could not have made me feel more comfortable personally and professionally. Dr. Ludwick et al – always took the time to explain the procedures and tests and made me feel secure and relaxed. Thank you again for being there for me.

Thyroid Disease

Thyroid Tumors and Goiter

Successful surgical removal of the thyroid gland requires more than just getting the gland out. It requires preservation of important motor nerves to prevent hoarseness or need for tracheotomy as well as the adjacent parathyroid glands to prevent post-operative low calcium levels. Dr. Ludwick is a seasoned thyroid surgeon having performed hundreds of successful thyroid surgeries and has treated:

  • Large goiters
  • Thyroid nodules
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Metastatic neck disease

Most patients recover quickly from the procedure and require only an overnight hospital stay.

Parathyroid Surgery

Dr. Ludwick is adept at the surgical management of parathyroid adenomas and four-gland hyperplasia. If you have persistently elevated blood calcium levels caused by an enlarged parathyroid gland, surgical removal of the gland will normalizes your calcium level. Kidney failure patients have chronically elevated calcium levels. Typically, this is managed with medications. A sub-total parathyroidectomy can restore calcium homeostasis when medications are no longer effective.
