At the Thyroid Surgery Center of Excellence in Los Angeles, our skilled medical professionals work to provide the best possible treatment for every patient dealing with thyroid cancer. Frequently, undergoing a thyroidectomy procedure is the best way to eliminate the disease and avoid a relapse.
A Thyroidectomy Procedure Tailored to Your Needs
During a thyroidectomy, our surgeons will determine whether part of or the entire neck gland will need to be removed. This depends on the size of the tumor and what is deemed to be safest for your continued health. Thanks to modern advancements in surgery, most thyroid surgeries can be completed with an incision that is about three centimeters long. This means that you will suffer little tissue damage while still having the full scope of your cancer accessible to a surgeon.
After completing your surgery, you may need to undergo radioactive iodine treatment which will be determined by the pathology report description of the type and extent of the cancer. Our team of medical professionals will work with you to ensure that your unique condition is treated properly and completely.
