There is good news if thyroid surgery becomes necessary. Over the last decade there have been major advances in the way thyroid surgery is performed. Improvements in technologies and techniques have now made thyroid surgery very safe, effective and relatively easy to recover from.
Different types of thyroid surgery are now available to patients, including minimally invasive procedures that cause less pain, allow easier recoveries, and result in smaller incisions.
Based on the type of disease, experience of the doctor and preferences of the patient, an optimal surgery can be chosen.
