Was just wondering if everyone who has had a TT....was it done by just a general surgeon or a surgeon who specializes in THYROID surgeries? I would think that one that specializes in THYROID SURGERIES would be the best bet just from the experience of doing many more.
From what I had read online before my surgery is to ask your doctor how man surgeries they've performed. You want somebody who has the expertise to be precise. There's a great list of check off points on one of the websites for a NYC hospital. I think Columbia Presbyterian. In the Health Pages I posted a health page with the info a few years ago.
PS: My ENT did >900 surgeries. Unfortunately, I had to wait 3 mos to have the surgery and that was a very long time but well worth it. He said I was the first person to ever actually ask how many he's performed but understood.
