Removal of part of the thyroid can be classified as:

An open thyroid biopsy – a rarely used operation where a nodule is excised directly;

A hemithyroidectomy or thyroid lobectomy – where one lobe (one half) of the thyroid is removed;

An isthmusectomy – removal of just the bridge of thyroid tissue between the two lobes; used specifically for small tumors that are located in the isthmus.

The recommendation as to the extent of thyroid surgery will be determined by the reason for the surgery. For instance, a nodule confined to one side of the thyroid may be treated with a hemithyroidectomy.

If you are being evaluated for a large bilateral goiter or large thyroid cancer, then you will probably have a recommendation for a total thyroidectomy. However, the extent of surgery is both a complex medical decision as well as a complex personal decision and should be made in conjunction with your endocrinologist and surgeon.

 

Many people are diagnosed with thyroid cancer every year and go for surgery for removing the gland completely or partially from the body known as Thyroidectomy. This type of surgery is performed by making one or more incisions in the neck, depending on the type of thyroid cancer. Doctors use anesthesia during the process to put the patient into sleep completely.
