Near-total thyroidectomy

Near-total thyroidectomy

A near-total thyroidectomy removes all but a very small part of the thyroid gland. The doctor will use the tissue removed during surgery (via a biopsy) to determine the cancer’s type and stage, which helps determine if the patient needs additional treatment.
