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
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.
Our endoscopic technique using the axillary approach helps to remove large nodules of the thyroid as well as performing total thyroidectomies. It combines the benefits of the minimal access approach, instrumentation, magnification and precision. The scars produced are hidden beneath the smallest of clothes offering a great cosmetic advantage.
In endoscopic thyroidectomy, very small incisions are made in the axilla, neck or chest.
