Robotic Thyroid Surgery

  • Understanding the procedure

    Robotic Thyroid Surgery

    Robotic thyroid surgery, also known as robotic thyroidectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing a part or the entire thyroid gland with the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System. In contrast to conventional open surgery that requires a larger incision in the neck to reach the thyroid gland, this robotic procedure involves making a small incision in the armpit to access the thyroid gland.

    The da Vinci system maximises the tight surgical space provided by a small incision by making use of 4 articulated robotic arms and a high-performance vision system. The allows the surgeon to operate with precision and dexterity while aided by highly magnified images of the interior of the body.

  • Some benefits of robotics thyroidectomy surgery include:

    • Less visible scars on your neck
    • Reduced chances of anterior (front) neck numbness
    • Reduced risk of affected parathyroid gland (small endocrine glands in your neck that control calcium levels in your bones and blood)
    • Reduced chances of laryngeal nerve damage

    Robotics thyroidectomy surgery is the recommended treatment for a variety of thyroid conditions including:

    • Thyroid nodules (benign and malignant)
    • Goitres (enlarged thyroid gland)
    • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
