Surgery of the Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands

This course is a two-day course about surgery of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, which has been offered since 1996. Preoperative evaluation, management and surveillance of low-risk thyroid cancer will be reviewed. Contemporary management of advanced thyroid cancer will be covered, with topics ranging from neoadjuvant targeted therapy to surgical management of the invaded recurrent laryngeal nerve. Updates in the management of oncocytic carcinoma will be discussed. A debate will be held on thyroid ablation technology. The new Adult Complex Thyroid Surgery Focused Practice Designation will be reviewed. A range of topics in parathyroid disease will be covered, from preoperative localization to intraoperative use of autofluorescence to advances in long-acting PTH treatment for hypoparathyroidism. Panel discussions and a tumor board will highlight management options and challenges for thyroid and parathyroid conditions.
