Title: Avoiding Disaster in Thyroid Surgery: Key Surgical Maneuvers
Date and Time of Session: Wednesday, October 19: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
Description: Contemporary optimal care of patients with thyroid cancer demands a team approach that would include both surgical and nonsurgical expertise. Much focus at the ACS has centered on the surgical focus of immediate thyroid care, particularly the extent of surgical resection and neck management. This panel would seek to emphasize other aspects of care unique to a successful program. Specific panelist topics would include the creation and implementation of thyroid specific tumor boards, rehabilitative surgical options for patients with complicated or advanced/invasive disease, growth of programs in parallel at single institutions where thyroid care is performed by different subspecialists, and combined efforts with other specialties when needed - thoracic and vascular surgery.
