If you have primary hyperparathyroidism (a growth on your parathyroid), the treatment is surgery.
This will cure it. If you have secondary hyperparathyroidism (kidney disease, vitamin d deficiency), the treatment is to control whatever is causing the parathyroid hormone to be high (replace vitamin d, treat the kidney problem). Sometimes a cure for secondary hyperpara is not possible...

Surgery - Head & Neck
In brief: Hyperparathyroidism
The CURE for hyperparathyroidism is surgical removal of the enlarged gland or glands (you have 4).
There is medical treatment but it is NOT a cure, it is expensive, and it has significant side effects.
