Pediatric thyroid surgery

The same conditions that may require adults to undergo thyroid surgery can occur in children.  While the surgical procedure for adults and children is similar, the overall management of pediatric vs. adult thyroid disease can be very different.

The details of surgery can be quite different and for this reason, only an experienced pediatric thyroid surgeon should perform thyroid surgery for children.  Research studies repeatedly show that the experience of the surgeon is the best indicator of a good outcome from surgery, and we feel that this is especially true in the case of pediatric thyroid surgery, where the anatomy is quite small and delicate.

Dr. Wright  has performed hundreds of thyroid surgeries for both cancer and non-cancer indications.  He is among the most experienced minimally invasive pediatric thyroid surgeons in the world.
