Why Endoscopic Thyroidectomy?

Our endoscopic technique using the the axillary approach helps to remove large nodules of the thyroid
thus avoids scars on the neck - so Scarless Thyroid Surgery

Cosmetic Appeal

No scars formed on the neck. The scars are well hidden in the clothes

Minimally invasive

No need for a large cut on the neck

Lesser Hospital Stay

Only 2 days needed for recovery

Thyroidectomy using the open method is effective, well-tolerated and safe, but involves a transverse incision on the neck measuring 12–15 cm in length. Thyroid disorders are more common in women and they find these scars uncomfortable and cosmetically unacceptable. Hence, minimal access approaches are playing an ever increasing role in neck surgery as they result in a reduction in size or elimination of the scar in the neck.
