Thyroid Disorders and Treatment
Thyroid Problems Treated
There are several thyroid conditions your physician will be able to diagnose and treat. Typically, an otolaryngologist is consulted when surgical management is indicated. Most of the surgery performed by the physicians at ENT Associates of Savannah, P.C. is for thyroid nodularity and compressive multinodular thyroid glands.
Surgery for the thyroid gland can be performed safely and with minimal risks. Many of the techniques for thyroid surgery have been refined with new technology, including endoscopic visualization and harmonic instruments. This technology allows for incisions as small as 1.5 centimeters. Typically, thyroid surgery can be safely performed on an outpatient basis without the need for drains.
