At Piedmont, we are dedicated to the health of you and your family. The experienced doctors on staff at Piedmont provide compassionate, quality care in an advanced healing environment. With over 40 years of combined experience, our board certified physician staff is highly trained in all types of thyroid removal surgeries.
Your physician may recommend thyroid removal surgery if the following symptoms pertain to you:
- A damagingly overactive thyroid (thyrotoxicosis)
- Thyroid cancer
- Benign thyroid tumors that produce other symptoms
- A minor thyroid cyst
- Trouble breathing or swallowing because of a swollen thyroid
A thyroid surgery may be desirable if you’re thyroid is overly active and potentially harmful. This can be a preferable treatment alternative to having radioactive iodine treatment or antithyroid medications.
