Minimally-Invasive Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery
The thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones, which in turn regulates metabolism and normal function of multiple organs in the body. The parathyroid glands are involved in maintaining normal calcium function. Disorders of the thyroid gland are typically classified into benign and malignant.
Patients’ candidacy for minimally-invasive surgical approach often depends on the underlying pathology and the surgical anatomy. Minimally-invasive surgery refers to the removal of diseased pathology through the smallest possible incision that enables adequate exposure of the underlying tissue without disruption of the surrounding tissue.
Where appropriate and safe, our Head and Neck surgeon Dr. Chu is an expert at using minimally-invasive thyroidectomy/parathyroidectomy techniques that minimize incision and recovery with optimal clinical outcomes.
