J. Goud Robotic Transaxillary Thyroidectomy


KIMS Clinical Director of Robotic Surgery and H.O.D. Surgical Oncology, Dr. Goud started the program 2 years ago. He talks about the steps of the trans-axillary Tyroidectomy, telling the audience his steps with animation, diagrams and robotic surgery video with position identifiers. He discusses tool choices and advantages/disadvantages for each. He also claims that “scarless” thyroidectomy patients have more pain, grasping weakness and temporary hoarseness following the procedure, but like having the hidden scars.
