Abstract

Thyroidectomy


 A thyroidectomy is a procedure that includes the surgical elimination of all or part of the thyroid gland. In overall surgery, endocrine or head and neck surgeons frequently perform a thyroidectomy once a patient has thyroid cancer or some other illness of the thyroid gland (such as hyperthyroidism) or goiter. Other signs for surgery contain symptomatic obstruction (causing difficulties in swallowing or breathing) or cosmetic (very enlarged thyroid).
