Abstract

Various techniques for minimally invasive thyroid surgery have been described over the last decade. These techniques have significant limitations owing to 2-dimensional view and awkward endoscopic instrumentation. Robotic surgical technology was developed to overcome these limitations. In this case report, we are describing our first 2 thyroid procedures using this technology: a total thyroidectomy in a 66-year old, and a thyroid lobectomy in a 43-year old. We found that robotic resection avoids a neck scar and offers quality 3-dimensional vision with dexterity similar to the human hand.
