Thyroid surgery

As an ENT surgeon with a focus on head and neck surgery, I’ve had the privilege of working with patients who come to me with a variety of concerns. One of the most common issues I see is thyroid disorders. When the thyroid gland doesn’t function properly, it can lead to a host of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, and mood changes. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to address the issue. Here’s what you need to know about thyroid surgery and how I approach this procedure as an ENT specialist in Singapore.

Thyroid surgery, also known as thyroidectomy, involves removing all or part of the thyroid gland. This gland is located in the neck and is responsible for producing hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism. When the thyroid gland becomes enlarged, known as a goiter, or develops nodules or tumors, surgery may be necessary to remove the affected tissue.

As an experienced ENT surgeon, I use advanced techniques to perform thyroid surgery with the utmost precision and care. This includes using minimally invasive approaches whenever possible, such as endoscopic or robotic surgery. These techniques can reduce post-operative pain and scarring, and help patients recover more quickly.

I’ve had the privilege of working with many patients who have benefited greatly from thyroid surgery. One such patient was a young woman who had been experiencing severe fatigue, weight gain, and hair loss for several months. After being diagnosed with an enlarged thyroid gland, she came to me for surgery. Using a minimally invasive technique, I was able to remove the affected tissue and preserve as much of her thyroid gland as possible. After her surgery, she reported feeling much more energetic and her other symptoms improved significantly.

Another patient who came to me for thyroid surgery had been experiencing difficulty swallowing and breathing due to an enlarged thyroid gland. Using a similar minimally invasive technique, I was able to remove the affected tissue and restore her normal breathing and swallowing function.

When it comes to thyroid surgery, it’s important to work with an experienced ENT surgeon who can provide individualized care and use the most advanced techniques available. At my practice, I strive to provide each patient with the highest level of care, from the initial consultation to the post-operative follow-up. If you’re experiencing symptoms related to thyroid disorders, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation to learn more about your options for treatment.

In summary, Dr Vyas Prasad is an experienced ENT surgeon who has helped many patients with thyroid disorders through advanced surgical techniques. Whether you’re dealing with an enlarged thyroid gland, nodules, or tumors, Dr Prasad can help you understand your options for treatment and provide the care you need to achieve the best possible outcome.
