Thyroid operations are advised for patients who have a variety of thyroid conditions, including both
cancerous and benign ( non - cancerous ) thyroid nodules, large thyroid glands ( goiters ), and
overactive thyroid glands. There are several thyroid operations that a surgeon may perform,
1- Excisional biopsy – removing a small part of the thyroid gland rarelyin use today ).
2- Lobectomy – removing half of the thyroid gland (the most frequent way to remove a nodule).
3- Total thyroidectomy, which removes all identifiable thyroid tissue.
A minimal access procedure does not necessarily mean that it is minimally invasive. However, as their namesimply, MIVAT and MIVAP are truly minimally invasive treatment modalities. The advantages these procedures offer over their conventional counterparts are indeed related to their minimally invasive nature. Furthermore, this nature has not compromised their ability to accomplish their purpose both safely and effectively. Improved pain and cosmetic outcomes, as well as overall patient satisfaction summarize these procedures.Contact Us
