Maybe: This is changing. Some surgeons do have most of their patients spend the night in the hospital; others allow most people to go home a few hours after their surgery. Some things that may affect this include whether tests have shown the exact location of the parathyroid tumor, a patient's overall health, and how far they live from the hospital.
