Minimally Invasive Thyroid Surgery Leaves No Scarring

A patient elects a minimally invasive thyroid procedure under the arm, and within a few weeks, makes a full recovery.

"I had my thyroid removed using an incision under my arm (alongside my armpit). There was virtually no pain (I never had to take pain medication) and I was up-and-around the next day. Within a few weeks, I had full use and movement of my arm. Best of all, there is no scar on my neck. Dr. Inabnet is an outstanding and very kind doctor. He and his staff could not have been nicer. I highly recommend this procedure and Dr. Inabnet."
