Look for a surgeon that does minimally invasive parathyroid surgery on a regular basis. Recovery is faster and complications fewer

In brief: Surgery

Surgical treatment is simple outpatient procedure which can be done with a 3/4 inch incision.
Radiation is not an acceptable treatment for benign parathyroid adenoma.
