Abstract :

Outpatient Thyroid surgery has been increasing in frequency over the last decade. Factors driving this transition of a traditional inpatient procedure to the outpatient realm include: costs, surgeon experience, energy instrumentation and agents for hemostasis, laryngeal electromyography and paraThyroid hormone assays among others. This presentation will highlight trends and published best practices to safely offer outpatient endocrine surgery of the neck when appropriately indicated. Obstacles to same day surgery will also be presented.
