Frequently asked questions
1) Why did are we assisting thyroid surgery patients?
We chose to assist thyroid surgery patients since there is a high chance of good longterm outcome after surgery- both for benign and malignant masses.
It is a very curbale kind of cancer if early consult is sought.
2) Is thyroid surgery the same as treating goiter?
Hypothyroidism is also known as goiter. Hyperthyroidism is also called Graves Disease. Both of these should be controlled and produce a blood level of normal thyroid hormones. Once thyroid hormones are normalized, the patient can undergo surgery to remove their thyroid lobe and prevent malignant transformation
