SYNERGY OF NOVEL TECHNOLOGIES IN THYROID SURGERY LEARN MORE FROM EXPERTS

Over the past months we had the pleasure to organise a four-part webinar series aiming at sharing knowledge and discussing further thyroid surgery dilemmas and the use of surgical innovations.

In those webinars, expert thyroid surgeons have provided insights on key considerations during thyroid surgery and how they benefit from using technologies to support them in preserving patient quality of life.
