Robotic transaxillary thyroidectomy

Epublication WebSurg.com, Apr 2017;17(04). URL:
Several techniques using videoscopic (endoscopic and laparoscopic) and robotic approaches for thyroidectomy in the treatment of benign and malignant thyroid disease have been described in the literature. One such approach is robotic transaxillary thyroidectomy, which was pioneered at Yonsei University, South Korea, by Dr. Woong Youn Chung. A major advantage of robot-assisted transaxillary thyroidectomy is that it avoids the need for a cervical incision.
