What is Trans-Oral Endocrine Surgery (Scarless Thyroid Surgery)?
Endocrine surgeon, Dr. Raymon Grogan, discusses Baylor College of Medicine’s approach to trans-oral endocrine surgery (scarless thyroid surgery). Trans-Oral Endocrine Surgery – Surgeons access the thyroid through minimally invasive incisions, typically through the lower lip, and use laparoscopic instruments to treat the thyroid. Unlike traditional thyroid procedures, patients who choose trans-oral endocrine surgery will not have any outwardly visible scars after surgery. This approach uses techniques that have been used in other types of minimally invasive surgeries. Find out why Baylor College of Medicine is the best choice for your needs.
