Minimally Invasive and Robotic Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery is the first textbook which includes a comprehensive review of both minimally invasive and robotic thyroid and parathyroid techniques. Over the last several years there has been a rapid expansion in the number of different surgical approaches available to patients undergoing thyroid and parathyroid surgery. This book consolidates these in one source and focuses on both the philosophy and techniques of these procedures. For thyroid surgery, the text covers the full range of minimally invasive procedures and several of the most widely adopted remote access techniques. Several related procedures are also discussed, including minimally invasive approaches to central and lateral neck dissection. For parathyroid surgery, several minimally invasive techniques are covered, including radioguided surgery. Written by experts in the field of thyroid and parathyroid surgery, Minimally Invasive and Robotic Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery serves as a critical resource for both experienced and less experience surgeons, fellows, residents, and students interested in understanding the breadth of this field or learning the specific steps of a particular technique.

Die Synergie von Evidenz und Erfahrung Eine maßgeschneiderte chirurgische Versorgung muss an Behandlungszielen, den individuellen Gegebenheiten und den Wünschen des betroffenen Patienten ausgerichtet sein. Individualisierte Chirurgie bedeutet weit mehr als die Anwendung von Standardverfahren und die Umsetzung von Leitlinien. Sie basiert auf profunder Erfahrung, Kenntnis der Erkrankung und Einschätzung des Patienten einschließlich seiner Belastbarkeit. Sie untersucht, mit welchem Verfahren dem Einzelnen optimal, nachhaltig und risikominimiert geholfen werden kann. Erfahrene, international tätige Operateure vermitteln in diesem Werk einen aktuellen Einblick in die klinische endokrin-chirurgische Forschung, ein Update über bestehende Kontroversen und ihre noch zu lösenden Fragen. Sie öffnen den Blick für alternative operative und nicht-operative Vorgehensweisen und zeigen, dass Behandlungsziele bei bestimmten Erkrankungen durchaus unterschiedlich sein können, was Leitlinien oft nicht zum Ausdruck bringen. Klinische Erfahrung steht hier nicht als Ersatz für fehlende wissenschaftliche Evidenz, sondern für das Erkennen und Nutzen möglicher Behandlungskorridore im Sinne einer individualisierten zielgerichteten Therapie zum Wohle des Patienten.
