Jul 12, 2018 · Thyroidectomy: Robotic Thyroid Surgery in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Yes, I was interested for myself. My Hurthle cells were discovered through an MRI for a Lypoma on the back of my neck in April 2018.
My Lypoma surgeon wanted to make sure the mass wasn't intruding my spine and the Thyroid nodule was discovered and I was recommended for an FNA biopsy; that is when the Hurthle cells were discovered.

I am having a Transoral Thyroid Lobectomy with Dr. Travis McKenzie on July 26th. If the nodule is benign I will have a small incision on my inner lip; if it's malignant, I will have to have an additional incision (traditional) on my neck to remove all of my thyroid.

Dr. Travis McKenzie will complete my complete surgery in one procedure; most places outside of Mayo do this in 2 separate surgeries.
I am very thankful to be able to have this done in ONE SURGERY.

I would like to know more about others’ experiences with having a Thyroid Lobectomy/Partial Thyroidectomy to remove Hurtle cells from their thyroid using the robotic surgery, which removes the nodule through an armpit incision.
