Conditions Addressed With Thyroid Surgery

Thyroid surgery is recommended for patients with several different conditions affecting the thyroid and parathyroid. Getting prompt treatment is crucial, as these glands produce the hormones that control metabolism and regulate nearly every vital function. If you’re dealing with one of these conditions, thyroid surgery could be a solution for you:

  • Goiters (enlarged thyroid glands)
  • Thyroid nodules
  • Thyroid cancer

Offering Several Types of Surgery

At Dr. Moutaa BenMaamer, we’re proud to offer a variety of thyroid surgeries to best meet our patients’ needs. We’ll take a close look at your condition before recommending one of these treatment approaches:


A lobectomy involves removing one of the thyroid's lobes and, in some cases, the isthmus.

Near-Total Thyroidectomy

This procedure is used to remove nearly all of the gland, leaving behind just a small piece of the lobe.

Total Thyroidectomy

During this surgery, we'll remove the entire thyroid. Patients will need to take hormones going forward to make up for the lack of a thyroid.

Parathyroid Gland Surgery

Patients need this surgery when the parathyroid gland produces too many hormones and becomes enlarged.

Using American and European Approaches

With 16 years of experience under his belt, Dr. BenMaamer has successfully completed hundreds of thyroid surgeries. During his medical training, he worked in Tunisia, France, and the United States, learning a range of different approaches to care. Today, he’s board-certified in both the U.S. and European Union. His unique perspective allows him to use both American and European treatment strategies while caring for patients.
