Thyroidectomy in Lagos
The surgical removal of all or part of your thyroid gland is known as a thyroidectomy. The thyroid gland, shaped like a butterfly, is positioned at the base of your neck. It secretes hormones that regulate every aspect of your metabolism, from heart rate to calorie burn rate.
Thyroidectomy is used to treat thyroid conditions such as cancer, noncancerous thyroid enlargement (goitre), and overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
