Surgery for Thyroid Cancer: Techniques and Outcomes

The most common surgical approach for thyroid cancer is a total thyroidectomy, which involves removing the entire thyroid gland. In some cases, a partial thyroidectomy may be performed if the cancer is confined to one lobe of the thyroid gland. Minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopic or robotic-assisted thyroid surgery may be used for smaller tumors or when preservation of the thyroid gland is desired. In some cases, lymph node dissection may also be performed to remove cancerous lymph nodes in the neck.
