Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is the most common form of thyroid cancer. A conventional open thyroidectomy is the standard surgical procedure since 1906, developed by Emil Theodor Kocher. However, an open thyroidectomy leaves a noticeable scar on the anterior neck, which is a concerning issue for women, who represent most patients with DTC. Thanks to the development of endoscopic surgery, surgeons can perform thyroidectomy from remote site without leaving any visible scar on the neck.
