About Thyroidectomy Surgery

A thyroidectomy is the surgical removal of the thyroid gland (partial or complete) for various reasons such as thyroid nodules, hyperthyroidism, etc. The amount of thyroid tissue to be removed depends on the severity and type of thyroid disease. The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck that controls metabolism. Therefore, thyroid disease can wreak havoc on the entire body if not treated in time.
While for some thyroid problems like Graves disease, hyperthyroidism etc medical treatment is possible in mild cases, for others like thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer etc immediate surgical treatment is preferred.

Diagnosis of thyroid problems

A correct diagnosis is necessary to provide the right treatment for a full recovery without recurrence. Diagnosis begins with an adequate medical history to determine the cause of the disease. Once the medical history has been taken, the doctor will perform several diagnostic tests to determine the exact nature of the disease.

Physical exam: The ENT surgeon will feel your neck and throat to determine if you have a goiter or swollen lymph nodes. If so, they will schedule further lab tests for you.

Blood tests: Blood tests measuring thyroxine (T4 hormone) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) can help confirm a diagnosis of thyroid disease. Hyperthyroidism is characterized by high thyroxine levels and low or no TSH (overactive thyroid) levels.

Radioactive Iodine Absorption Test: This test is used to determine the amount of iodine our thyroid absorbs by asking the patient to take radioactive iodine orally. Elevated iodine intake indicates excess thyroxine production caused by Graves’ disease or hyperfunctional thyroid nodules.
Thyroid Scan: In this procedure, radioactive iodine is injected into the patient’s bloodstream to see the amount of iodine being absorbed by the gland and to determine if the patient has thyroid problems such as hyperthyroidism, cancer, or other growths.

Thyroid Ultrasound: Ultrasound is extremely useful for imaging thyroid problems in patients where radioactive exposure is prohibited, such as: B. Pregnant women, developing children, etc.
Tissue Biopsy: If the patient has suspicious nodules/growths on the thyroid gland, a fine-needle aspiration biopsy may be done to remove tissue from the thyroid gland to determine if the patient has thyroid cancer. Thyroid Removal Surgery in Tirupati

Depending on the nature and severity of the patient’s symptoms, the doctor may order additional diagnostic tests such as antibody testing, endoscopy, etc.

Thyroidectomy Procedure
Depending on the cause and severity of the symptoms and the patient’s and surgeon’s preferences, the surgeon will determine how much thyroid tissue needs to be removed. The types of surgical techniques for thyroidectomy are:

Open/conventional thyroidectomy: This was the most common approach to thyroid surgery. The surgeon makes an incision in the neck to access the thyroid directly. Because this surgery is performed by cutting the neck muscles to gain access to the thyroid, it is no longer preferred.
Transoral thyroidectomy: In transoral thyroidectomy, the surgeon does not make an external incision. Therefore, it is more aesthetically pleasing for most patients. Surgical instruments are inserted through the mouth and the surgery is performed through internal incisions.

Endoscopic thyroidectomy: This is a minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon makes small incisions in the neck and inserts surgical tools (including a small endoscope) through the incisions. The camera helps guide surgical instruments and ensures surrounding tissue is not damaged. Most surgeons today prefer endoscopic procedures.

What is the cost of a thyroidectomy in Tirupati?
The cost of thyroid surgery in Tirupati ranges from Rs. 75,000 to Rs. 90,000. However, these costs are very subjective and can vary depending on various factors such as the type of surgery, the amount of tissue removed, the severity of the condition, etc.

Is Thyroidectomy Painful?
Thyroid removal surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so the patient is unconscious during the surgery and does not feel any pain. After the operation, pain and discomfort in the neck and hoarse voice may occur, but these last only a few days and can be treated with medication.

What Types of Thyroidectomy Does Tirupati Offer?
A thyroidectomy can be of the following types:

Total thyroidectomy: Removal of the entire thyroid gland
Thyroid lobectomy: An entire lobe of the thyroid gland is removed
Near-total thyroidectomy: Most of the gland is removed, but a small sliver is left to preserve thyroid function
Subtotal thyroidectomy: Most of the gland is removed, but part of each lobe is preserved
Thyroid isthmusectomy: The isthmus is removed

How should I prepare for the thyroidectomy?
Once your surgery is scheduled, you need to take certain precautions to ensure there are no post-operative complications. If you are taking blood thinners or blood thinners, you may need to stop them 2-3 days before the surgery. Thyroid Removal Surgery in Tirupati

Since the operation is performed under general anesthesia, you must not eat or drink anything after midnight before the operation. Also, prepare a hospital bag for 1-2 days and have them drive you home after the operation.

How long does it take to fully recover from a thyroidectomy?
Provided there are no complications, patients are discharged within 1-2 days after the operation and can return to work within a week, but should wait at least 2-3 weeks for intense physical activity. Full recovery can take around 3-4 months.

Why is a partial thyroidectomy preferred over a total thyroidectomy?
Hemithyroidectomy (partial thyroidectomy) is generally preferred to total thyroidectomy because it reduces the patient’s overall need for TSH, thyroxine, and other nutritional supplements. However, after a total thyroidectomy, patients require daily hormone supplements to replace the thyroid’s natural function.

What thyroid problems is a hemithyroidectomy done for?
A hemithyroidectomy is usually performed when the patient has an overactive thyroid or a lump/growth attached to only one lobe of the thyroid to treat the thyroid problem while preserving thyroid function.

How Long Does It Take for a Thyroidectomy Scar to Fade?
Depending on the length of the scar, the surgical technique, and the surgeon’s expertise, the surgical scar from a thyroidectomy usually disappears within 3 to 6 months.

What are the risks associated with thyroid surgery?
With advances in medicine, thyroidectomy has become a very safe procedure. However, some complications of thyroidectomy can still occur, such as:

Bleeding and infection: Postoperative infections can delay healing and lead to other complications. Make sure there is no pain, swelling, warmth, redness, or discharge of pus from the surgical site after the surgery.

Seroma: Sometimes there can be a buildup of fluid at the surgical site called a seroma. Small seromas usually go away on their own, but if they are large, they can further delay healing.
Airway Obstruction: The trachea can be compressed during surgery, which can lead to hematoma and airway obstruction if not resolved quickly. Thyroid Removal Surgery in Tirupati

Injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve: Irritation of the recurrent laryngeal nerve is common during thyroidectomy, but if the nerve is injured it can result in a permanently hoarse and weak voice.
Low PTH and Calcium Levels: Low serum calcium and PTH levels are common side effects of thyroid/parathyroid gland removal. To cope with this, the patient may need to take supplements for an extended period of time.

How can I improve my recovery after surgery?
You should follow the advice given to improve your recovery after thyroidectomy surgery:

Although there are no dietary restrictions after surgery, since you may experience a sore throat, you should eat soft, cold, easy-to-swallow foods and avoid heavy, greasy, or spicy meals for a few days.
You should take your pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, hormone supplements, etc. as prescribed to ensure your recovery stays on track.

There are no restrictions on light activities after discharge from the hospital. You should begin short walks almost immediately after surgery.

Since the neck will be retracted for the surgery, post-surgery neck stiffness and pain are to be expected, so you should perform gentle neck exercises to relieve them.
Your voice may be hoarse and weak after surgery, but you should not refrain from speaking during the recovery period.
 
You can shower within 24-48 hours after the operation, but you must be careful and avoid getting your incision/bandage wet. Avoid swimming, baths and spas for at least 2 weeks after surgery.
