Hell, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Parathyroidectomy is surgery to remove the parathyroid glands or parathyroid tumors. The parathyroid glands are right behind your thyroid gland in your neck. These glands help your body control the calcium level in the blood. More information in the resource below. I hope your surgery goes well.
