Minimally Invasive Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery

Thyroid and parathyroid surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. Multiple minimally invasive techniques for the removal of thyroid and parathyroid glands exist. We offer open minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid approaches. Through a small, approximately, 1-inch horizontal incision in the neck we address benign and malignant thyroid and parathyroid disease when indicated. We usually close the incision with medical grade glue and tape. All of our patients stay only one night in the hospital. Our specialists at The Voice and Swallowing Center of Puerto Rico are expert thyroid surgeons with over 200 thyroid and parathyroid cases a year.
