What is minimal access thyroid surgery?

It is thyroid surgery performed through a minimal access 2cm neck incision as opposed to the standard 5-10cm incision utilised in other thyroid surgery.

How does minimal access thyroid surgery work?

The operation is no different from any other form of thyroid surgery apart from the significantly reduced incision size. The operation takes about 2-3hrs.

What are the benefits?

The benefits for the patient are improved cosmetics with a scar that essentially "disappears" within 12 months of surgery.

How safe is the treatment?

The treatment is safe with very minimal complication rates post-thyroidectomy.

Content for this treatment has been provided by Mr Myles Black, Consultant ENT & Head & Neck Surgeon practising at BMI The Chaucer Hospital, Canterbury.
