What is minimal invasive thyroidectomy? 

 

Minimal invasive thyroid surgery is much different from the traditional thyroid surgery.  With the minimally invasive technique endoscopes are used through a very small incision in the neck.  The incision is about one inch compared to the 3-4 inch incision in the traditional technique.   Minimally invasive thyroid surgery is typically an outpatient technique.  This means you can go home the same day you had the surgery….no staying in the hospital…HURRAY!   One will also recover much quicker from the minimally invasive technique. 

Below are some information videos about minimally invasive thyroid surgery.  I was very pleased with this surgery and would recommend this technique over the traditional surgery for anyone that requires thyroid surgery (thyroidectomy.)
