Thyroid Surgery

Surgery of benign or malignant tumors of the thyroid gland is a challenging operation. Fortunately, MultiCare ENT surgeons, use their extensive subspecialty experience and knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck to carefully remove affected portions of this glands while preserving the delicate nerve that moves the vocal cords (recurrent laryngeal nerve) and the parathyroid glands. If you need to have a thyroidectomy for a tumor of the thyroid gland (thyroid goiter or cancer) or a poorly functioning gland, ask for a referral to an Ear Nose Throat surgeon with expertise and familiarity with modern techniques and technology for safe thyroid surgery.
