The thyroid surgery is a procedure that treats some conditions such as thyroid cancer, certain types of goiter and the Graves-Basedow disease.
What does intervention consist of?
Before performing the Thyroid Gland Surgery, a series of test are needed, as well as dosage of the thyroid hormones, thyroid ultrasonography, cervical-thoracic radiography, scintigraphy, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In the case of hyperthyroidism, before intervention, antithyroid drug treatment for hormonal balance is needed. Thyroid surgery is only done under general anaesthesia and involves making an incision above the sternum. Depending on the disease, it is necessary partial, total or subtotal thyroidectomy (Thyroid Gland Surgery). The procedure lasts between 40 minutes and two hours. In the case of total thyroidectomy, the patient will have to follow a permanent treatment with thyroid hormones.
What about the recovery?
The surgery itself has a low difficulty level. Surgical approach of the thyroid is easy, because the gland is located at the base of the neck, just below the superficial plans.
The postoperative recovery is generally mild. The most important thing that the patient must take into account after the thyroid surgery is the thyroid hormone replacement therapy, which must be followed permanently. The thyroid is an organ whose function can be replaced by drugs (as well as the pancreas, for example)
