Overview

This color atlas is a detailed guide on how to perform open, endoscopic, and robotic thyroidectomy techniques safely and effectively. Each chapter offers step-by-step descriptions of essential surgical procedures and techniques. Relevant information is included on surgical anatomy, and clear guidance is provided on preoperative set-up, draping, instrumentation, and complications and their treatment. The description of endoscopic thyroidectomy techniques focuses on the bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA), while in the case of robotic thyroidectomy both BABA and the bilateral axillo-postauricular approach are described. In each case, the evidence supporting the technique is carefully examined. In the closing chapter, the role of new energy sources in thyroid surgery is discussed. The lucid text is supported by more than 200 full-color illustrations clarifying surgical anatomy, instrumentation, and procedures, and surgical video clips are also available to readers via a website. This atlas will be invaluable in enabling surgeons to achieve optimal outcomes when performing thyroid surgery.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott Q Nguyen, MD (Mount Sinai School of Medicine)
Description: This atlas details the multiple approaches available to perform thyroidectomy, with complete illustrations and schematic descriptions for performing safe open, endoscopic, and robotic thyroidectomy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide detailed descriptions of how to perform minimally invasive (oncoplastic) thyroid surgery safely and effectively. As the incidence of thyroid cancer and, hence thyroid operations, increase there will continue to be rise in demand for thyroidectomy that will not leave a scar in the neck. This book provides the detailed description needed to prepare for and to perform these procedures.
Audience: Experienced thyroid surgeons are the intended audience. Dr. Youn is a pioneer the field of endoscopic and robotic thyroid surgery and in this book he shares his expertise.
Features: The book has detailed descriptions of open, endoscopic, and robotic thyroid surgery. Multiple schematics and illustrations, including color photographs, are provided to better describe the operations. The equipment needed to prepare for these operations is described in detail so surgeons will be well prepared to perform these operations.
Assessment: Dr. Youn has shared his years of experience in this book and provides thyroid surgeons with the tools necessary to perform endoscopic and robotic surgery safely. This is the first atlas in the field of endocrine surgery describing these approaches to thyroidectomy in such detail.
