This lady has had a growing thyroid mass for 10 years. Today we removed it. The gland weighed 850 grams-almost 2 pounds. The piece on the right was substernal, lying on top of the aortic arch.
Dr. Mike and I operated on their lady yesterday. She has a large parotid tumor. We were able to find the 7th nerve and save it. These are some of our most difficult and tedious cases but can be much easier with a great assistant like Mike.
