ENT is a subspecialty and requires specialized equipment to thoroughly examine and properly diagnose a patient’s complaint.

There is very little bleeding during the procedure and the patient rarely complains of intense postoperative pain – although this varies from patient to patient. A small drain is often used for 24 hours and patients may either go home the same day or be observed overnight. If the entire thyroid gland is removed, blood calcium levels are checked postoperatively to make sure they are stable before the patient is discharged home. Again, depending on how much of the thyroid gland is removed, patients may need to take thyroid hormone replacement after surgery.
