If you suffer from myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness, you may be a candidate for a myectomy. A myectomy is a surgical procedure in which a portion of the thymus gland is removed to alleviate symptoms of the disease.

Dr. Maria Azad is a highly skilled surgeon who specializes in myectomy procedures. She has years of experience and has performed numerous successful surgeries for patients with myasthenia gravis. Dr. Azad uses the latest techniques and equipment to ensure that her patients receive the best possible care.

Before the procedure, Dr. Azad will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if a myectomy is the best course of action. If it is, she will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. She will explain the procedure in detail, including any potential risks and complications, and will answer all of your questions.

During the myectomy, Dr. Azad will make a small incision in your chest and remove a portion of the thymus gland. The surgery typically takes a few hours, and you will be under general anesthesia. After the surgery, you will need to stay in the hospital for a few days to recover. Dr. Azad and her team will closely monitor your progress and provide any necessary support.

Dr. Azad understands that surgery can be a daunting prospect, and she strives to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. She and her team will provide you with compassionate care and support throughout the entire process, from your initial evaluation to your post-operative recovery.

If you are suffering from myasthenia gravis and are considering a myectomy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Maria Azad today. She will work with you to determine if a myectomy is the right choice for you and provide you with the highest level of care and support.
