  • About this book

The Operation Primer provides excellent photographic step-by-step guidance to the surgical procedure. It has been produced to describe the operation in the simplest manner possible without over-simplifying. The core of the Operation Primer is the section on Nodal Points, where the key surgical steps are described in detail. This surgical guidebook provides essential reference material to surgeons wishing to update their knowledge in this specific area.

The Operation Primer "Thyroidectomy with Harmonic FOCUS®" is aimed particularly at future surgeons who wish to familiarize themselves with thyroid operation procedures. It is also useful for surgeons experienced in thyroidectomy who want to apply Harmonic FOCUS®, a new ultrasonic-based instrument especially developed for thyroid operations. It allows fine and delicate surgery close to vital structures. The Operation Primer gives a detailed overview of the patients’ preparation, key surgical steps, and the pitfalls of thyroidectomy. The major goal was to provide a comprehensive surgical guidebook for surgeons performing thyroidectomy.
