Thyroid Surgery

Last year, 17-year-old Rachel, an aspiring model, began suffering from extreme fatigue, bouts of dizziness and often felt like she was choking. She was diagnosed with an enlarged left thyroid mass, which usually requires a surgical procedure that leaves a scar on the neck. To avoid leaving a visible scar on Rachel’s neck, otolaryngologist Dr. David J. Terris performed a robotic facelift thyroid surgery, a new procedure that creates an incision behind the ear to conceal the scar, and a robot is used to remove the thyroid gland.
