Parathyroid Q&A was founded by Dr. Deva Boone of the Southwest Parathyroid Center. Dr. Boone has dedicated her career to the understanding and treatment of parathyroid disease, combining compassion, knowledge, and experience to provide world-class care to all patients.
After obtaining her MD at Cornell Medical College, Dr. Boone completed a general surgery residency in New York City and endocrine surgery fellowship in Chicago, IL. She then subspecialized in parathyroid surgery. She joined the Norman Parathyroid Center in 2014, where she performed over 3600 parathyroid operations and consulted with thousands more patients with suspected calcium and parathyroid abnormalities. As a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American College of Endocrinology, she is a recognized expert in her field.
Dr. Boone is a frequent speaker on parathyroid disease. She enjoys teaching both patients and other physicians about calcium, Vitamin D, and the parathyroids. In 2017 she published one of the most significant parathyroid papers, a review of over 20,000 cases of primary hyperparathyroidism.
