Thyroid Lobectomy

Thyroid Lobectomy

Thyroid lobectomy is a term to describe removing either the right or left half of the thyroid gland. The remaining half of the thyroid gland continues to secrete thyroid hormone normally. This surgery is often done for nodules and sometimes small cancers. Removal of only half the gland reduces the surgical time and risks, and often patients will be able to return home the same day as surgery.
