ABOUT DEVA BOONE
After attending Cornell Medical College, I completed a general surgery residency in New York City and an endocrine surgery fellowship in Chicago. I then subspecialized, performing only parathyroid surgery for the next six years (over 3500 parathyroid operations) at the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, Florida. I am currently in the executive MBA class of 2021 at the University of South Florida.
I recently founded the Southwest Parathyroid Center in Phoenix, Arizona. I currently provide consultations to anyone with parathyroid disease or issues regarding calcium and Vitamin D, and answer online questions at ParathyroidQandA.com.
