Enucleation of ganglion
Surgeries on a thyroid gland with enucleation of ganglion are the most sparing and are used in patients with ganglion lumps of the organ. Surgeon removes a formed ganglion with a capsule during the operation without damaging the thyroid gland. Such surgical procedures on do not cause malfunction of the organ and the experienced German surgeons provide a good result and fast recovery.
The thyroid gland consists of two parts that are connected by isthmus. Usually, pathologic process starts in one of the parts and then affects another one. If the disease is detected early, hemithyroidectomy is used. Such surgery is performed by removing one of the parts of isthmus.
Surgeries on the thyroid gland during adenomas are aimed at elimination of excessive thyroidal hormones generation. Subtotal resection involves removal of most of the organ. Several small parts remain that can later compensate normal generation of the thyroidal hormones due to high activity without causing pathological processes in the organism.
This surgical procedure is rather serious and can cause serious complications in case of lack of professionalism. But these kind of surgeries are performed carefully in the German clinics, without damaging the surrounding organs.
