What is Thyroid gland surgery?
Thyroid gland surgery is done to treat thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, and hyperthyroidism. In this surgery, the thyroid gland is removed. This surgery is the most common for thyroid cancer. Similar to lobectomy, this procedure is usually done through an incision a few inches in diameter in the front of the neck.
How is the procedure carried out?
Thyroid gland surgery is carried out through general anesthesia and with a minimally invasive approach, resulting in a fast recovery.Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive techniques, this method uses several small incisions, rather than one large incision as in traditional surgery. Fiber optic cameras and specialized instruments are used to perform the procedure through these small incisions. This approach offers many benefits for the patient, such as:
- Less recovery time.
- Less scars.
- Less discomfort or pain.
- Quicker return to normal activities.
