Will I lose my voice after parathyroid surgery

risk of losing your voice is extremely small with parathyroid surgery. However, it is not zero. Most experienced parathyroid surgeons have a 1-2% rate of permanent hoarseness after surgery. A complete loss of your voice would be exceedingly rare and would only happen if the nerve that innervates your voice box is injured on both sides. If permanent hoarseness does occur, there are procedures that can be performed to bring your voice as close to normal as possible.
