Robotic Transaxillary Thyroid Surgery: Patients Satisfaction with Cosmetic Outcome

Saeed A, Abdelghani R and Kandil E

Transaxillary robotic thyroidectomy is a new approach that eliminates the need for a cervical incision. This is achieved by approaching the thyroid from the axilla, allowing the surgical incision to be completely covered by the patient’s arm at rest. Robotic transaxillary thyroidectomy is feasible and can be performed safely. This review evaluates the current literature on patient satisfaction with this operation.
