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.

"I have had horrible allergies for years. Prior to coming to Crosstimbers ENT, I had as many as 5 sinus infections each year, which meant I had as many rounds of antibiotics prescribed by my GP. Since opting for a relationship with Crosstimbers, I have learned effective alternative methods of controlling my sinus issues. I still have allergies, but I haven't had a sinus infection in nearly 3 years. Thanks to Allergy Specialist, Jennifer Taylor, she has identified my allergies and she is doing an awesome job of helping me overcome my issues. Thanks Jennifer Taylor, Jennifer Paris and Dr Shellenberger."- D.B. / Google / May 12, 2021

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.
