Will my bone density improve after parathyroid surgery?

Studies show that after successful parathyroid surgery the bone density will improve by as much as 8 to 12% and the risk of fracture will decrease. Improvements are measurable one year following surgery and continue for the next ten years. All patients with hyperparathyroidism, from mild to severe disease, have significant benefits in bone health following surgery.
