About thyroid Conditions
The thyroid is a small gland located at the front of the neck that plays an important role in regulating hormones within the body. When a patient is plagued by a thyroid condition, the best possible treatment method may include surgery. The skilled team at Cross Timbers ENT is skilled to offer surgical treatment for thyroid-related conditions. The following conditions may require surgical intervention:
- Thyroid nodules – Fluid-filled lumps that may grow on the thyroid and lead to an overproduction of hormones.
- Goiters – The enlargement of the thyroid that can cause discomfort when swallowing and coughing.
- Thyroid cancer – Cancer that appears directly within the thyroid gland.

What to Expect During and After Thyroid Surgery
Depending on your condition and the extent of the surgery required to treat it, your thyroid surgery could take a couple of hours. Prior to surgery, you will be given general anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable during the procedure. Our talented surgeons will follow a carefully predetermined surgical plan in order to directly treat your thyroid condition. Following surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery room for a few hours. Most patients resume a normal diet quickly. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions.
