Goiter Screening

In early February we had our annual Goiter Screening.  Dozens of patients presented on screening day to be evaluated by the surgeon.  Some of these patients we have been following closely in our goiter clinic since way back in September.  These are patients that had abnormal thyroid levels.  We monitor them on a monthly basis to try and normalize these levels prior to surgery.  It’s always very satisfying to get them in tip top shape by the time the surgeon arrives.  It’s a fun process as well because these are patients that we have a sustained relationship with.  When we finally get to share their surgery date with them it feels like celebrating with a friend.
