When Procedure is Used

Thyroidectomies can be conducted through a small incision at the front of the throat. You will most likely be under general anesthesia for the procedure in order to relax your muscles and allow you to sleep. Your surgeon will then make incisions as necessary and will remove your whole thyroid or part of it. Additionally, the lymph nodes around your thyroid may need to be removed as well, and your surgeon can do this at the same time.
