A team led by Doctor Pawan Rane, a head and neck Surgeon of Healthway Hospital, performed an endoscopic scarless thyroid surgery on two patients. This is a breakthrough achievement in the field of surgery in Goa.
Endoscopic Scarless Thyroid Surgery avoids unsightly neck scars. The specimen is removed from the armpit in this case. Dr. Pawan Rane is a trained surgeon in this procedure from the Seoul National University Hospital, South Korea and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York. Dr. Pawan Rane’s team of surgeons comprised of Dr. Sandeep Pawar, Dr. Bharati Sawant, Dr. Bossuet Afonso and Dr. Gupta.
This procedure is now available to the people of Goa at Healthway Hospital, Panjim. This sure is a feather in our cap!
