Mr Mihai’s main expertise include minimally invasive thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgery. He treats patients with isolated endocrine tumours or familial diseases, including children of such families. Patients with the following conditions can be assessed and offered appropriate treatment:
Thyroid surgery • Thyroid nodules • Goitre, including large retrosternal goitres • Graves disease (hyperthyroidism) • Thyroid cancer, including locally-advanced tumours that need radical lymph node dissections
Parathyroid surgery • Primary hyperparathyroidism – minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for patients with positive scans and bilateral neck explorations for those with negative scans • Familial hyperparathyroidism • Redo parathyroidectomy after failure of previous operations • Secondary hyperparathyroidism – surgical management of patients with overactive parathyroid glands due to long-standing renal failure
Adrenal surgery • Benign functional tumours (Cushing syndrome, phaeochromocytoma, hyperaldosteronism-Conn’s syndrome) are operated using laparoscopic techniques • Adrenal cancer - radical open adrenalectomy
In addition, Mr Mihai performs laparoscopic cholecystectomies (gallstones disease), laparoscopic repair of incisional hernias and open repair of groin hernias.
