Our Surgical Technique
The surgical technique used in thyroid surgery at The Thyroid Surgery Center of Texas, P.A. has evolved for more than half a century, incorporating all of the best qualities of many of the truly great thyroid surgeons in the history of Head and Neck Surgery and adding to them the experience and knowledge we have obtained over the last three decades. It is nearly a bloodless procedure, many patients never losing as much as a thimble-full of blood. This is perhaps a reason that patients who fear blood transfusion, or cannot receive blood products due to religious convictions, often seek us out for their thyroid surgery. But there is an important by-product of this lack of bleeding that is crucial to successful surgery of any kind, but is especially true in the neck where many small and vital structures abound. Without bleeding, the operative field is clearly visible and nerves, glands and other important structures are easily identified and spared any significant trauma of surgery. This is a critical aspect of the Rosendahl procedure that helps to explain our extremely low complication rate.
Through the years we have shared our expertise with other surgeons from various surgical specialties who have been invited or have asked to assist us in surgery in order to learn our technique. We gladly share this knowledge with any qualified surgeon in the hopes it will improve the quality of thyroid surgery throughout the medical community and improve the surgical outcome for all of our patients.
