Abstract

The field of thyroid surgery has evolved to the point where multiple access options are now available. These include conventional approaches, minimally invasive endoscopic and non-endoscopic methods, and even remote access techniques with or without robotic assistance. Remote access surgery is reserved for those individuals who are committed to completely eliminating a neck scar. The procedures require more extensive dissection and robotic technology facilitates their performance. While an axillary approach has been the most commonly pursued, we have developed an easier technique that puts fewer structures at risk and involves a reduced area of dissection. It uses as its access portal a modified facelift incision.
