Thyroidectomy

Paul is an active advocate for thyroid patients through his regular blog posts, which offer a wealth of information that both relate to his books as well as current news and insights.

A total thyroidectomy (TT) involves the surgical removal or removal by radioactive iodine (RAI) of the thyroid gland. Surgery usually removes all of the thyroid gland in one go. RAI may need several uses before the thyroid is totally destroyed.

A partial thyroidectomy involves the removal of a part of the thyroid gland, often one of the two lobes.

Thyroidectomies are performed for thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, goiters, and suspicious nodules.
