The expert head and neck surgeons at the Los Angeles Thyroid Surgery Center of Excellence perform several different types of thyroid surgery to treat a variety of conditions.
Minimally Invasive Thyroid Surgery
The head and neck surgeons at the Thyroid Surgery Center of Excellence are internationally renowned for their minimally invasive thyroid surgery techniques. Among the best in the field, they utilize small surgical incisions and endoscopic technology to perform thyroidectomy, partial thyroidectomy, and thyroid nodule removal procedures.
Central Neck Dissection
Central neck dissection is a procedure in which the central lymph nodes in the neck, nearest the thyroid gland, are removed. This is typically performed at the same time as a thyroidectomy to remove a cancerous thyroid gland, or after thyroid removal if it is suspected that the cancer has spread to the central lymph nodes.
Selective Neck Dissection
Selective neck dissection is an intricate procedure to remove some of the lymph nodes in the neck. This is indicated when thyroid cancer has spread to the cervical lymph nodes and is necessary to keep the cancer from spreading to other organs. Selective neck dissection is a complex procedure performed with great care to preserve the function of surrounding nerves and neck structures.
