Robotic Thyroidectomy


Sobol & daVinciThyroid surgery without a neck scar
New minimally invasive surgery reduces recovery time and post-operative pain.

Otolaryngologist Steven Sobol, MD, is performing a new minimally invasive robotic assisted surgery for thyroid at Decatur Memorial Hospital. This new surgery removes the thyroid gland and eliminates the need for an incision across the neck.

Using advanced techniques, this minimally invasive technology provides Dr. Sobol with superior vision, precision, dexterity and improved access to the affected area. This new and improved surgical approach minimizes incisions and nerve damage, while potentially reducing recovery time and post-operative pain.
