The rate of thyroid illness in overall public is colossal. Thyroid problems are the most often experienced endocrine illnesses in India. The thyroid is a little endocrine organ which produces chemicals that control different metabolic exercises of the body. Thyroid illnesses can be assembled into harmless and threatening sorts. In harmless cases, the normal sicknesses experienced are thyroiditis (for the most part Hashimoto thyroiditis), goiter, thyroid adenoma, etc. Complete thyroidectomy is a surgery which is performed to treat different thyroid illnesses wherein the thyroid organ is eliminated. In any case, the utilization of all out thyroidectomy strategy is thought of as not to be ok for thyroid carcinomas and furthermore for treatment of few harmless sicknesses due to the dangers implied. Assuming thyroidectomy is attempted, care should be taken while ligating the better and substandard thyroid corridor than keep away from harm to nearby nerves. Ligation of the better thyroid conduit close than the predominant shaft of thyroid organ is viewed as protected. Most secure methodology is to distinguish the parts of unrivaled thyroid corridor and try not to ligate the fundamental trunk as in greater part of cases better laryngeal nerve lies close than the primary trunk. The outside laryngeal nerves run near predominant thyroid course and intermittent laryngeal nerve runs near sub-par thyroid conduit. Specialists stay away from this system because of the potential confusions related with it, for example, long-lasting repetitive laryngeal nerve paralysis or extremely durable hypoparathyroidism [1].

In this way, halfway or subtotal thyroidectomy is another technique which is liked and at present being performed for harmless thyroid illnesses. Lately the utilization of nerve screens triggers has been pushed yet their helpfulness actually remains exceptionally questionable. As a matter of fact one review reports that the specialists had the option to utilize it just to distinguish prevalent laryngeal nerve and it didn't help them in the physical analyzation of repetitive laryngeal nerve. Not many insignificantly obtrusive techniques are presently generally utilized for carrying out endocrine procedures [2].

Thyroidectomy might be performed for various harmless and threatening circumstances including thyroid knobs, hyperthyroidism, obstructive or substernal goiter, separated (papillary or follicular) thyroid malignant growth, medullary thyroid disease (MTC), anaplastic thyroid malignant growth, essential thyroid lymphoma (medical procedure is restricted to getting tissue biopsy), and metastases to the thyroid from extrathyroidal essential disease (most normally renal cell and cellular breakdown in the lungs). Thyroid knobs are an overall peculiarity present clinically in 1% of men and 5% of ladies. Most of knobs are harmless, with just 5% of knobs addressing malignant growth. With high-goal ultrasound, thyroid knobs can be recognized in up to 68% of haphazardly chosen subjects who get a screening ultrasound, with a preference towards ladies and the elderly. Goiter is depicted as a strange development of the thyroid organ and can be diffuse or nodular [3].

The presence of goiter can be connected to iodine lack and is in this manner endemic in iodine-insufficient districts of the world. In asymptomatic, iodinelacking gatherings, a goiter can be analyzed in roughly a fourth of the populace, with expanding recurrence in more seasoned populations. Thyroidectomy is possibly demonstrated in both threatening and harmless pathologies with an elevated degree of selectivity. Signs incorporate thyroid malignant growth, harmful multinodular goiter, poisonous adenomas, goiter with compressive side effects, Graves sickness that is either not receptive to clinical therapy or for whom clinical administration may not be encouraged, for example, those endeavoring to become pregnant. Most thyroid knobs won't need extraction. Knobs that are at expanded hazard of harm will frequently require fine needle yearning (FNA) to help with the separation among harmless and dangerous knobs. At the point when knobs are of a size more noteworthy than 1 cm, nonpractical (known as a "cool" knob), or potentially showing concerning ultrasound discoveries, they will commonly meet the measures for biopsy. Numerous social orders have delivered treatment calculations for the administration of thyroid knobs. The American Thyroid Association rules pressure two boundaries: size of the knob and sonographic design [4].

Infections of thyroid organ are vital on the grounds that they are difficult for clinical or careful administration. All out thyroidectomy is considered as the standard surgery to treat thyroid sicknesses. The primary sicknesses of the thyroid organ are goiter, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroiditis, and neoplasms. Thyroidectomy medical procedure is supposed to be the most widely recognized reason for reciprocal vocal rope incapacitates. A review proposes that thyroidectomy medical procedure is one of the primary elements which cause two-sided vocal rope injury. The predominance of postoperative hypocalcemia following thyroidectomy which might be transitory or super durable reaches from 0% to 83%, with the most noteworthy rate found in patients going through absolute thyroidectomy for malignant growth.

The level of all out thyroidectomies being performed for different thyroid illnesses has expanded altogether as of late. At first, the dangers which were related with significant medical procedures to treat thyroid illness kept the specialists from performing all out thyroidectomies. New strategies, for example, postoperative levothyroxine treatment appear to lessen repeat rates in the other thyroid curve after fractional resection of the thyroid organ. Be that as it may, not all new methods have shown promising outcomes. For instance, the utilization of an ultrasonic dissector doesn't appear to impact difficulty rates, as detailed in two examinations.

In the current stage, thyroid organ sicknesses are quite possibly of the most experienced endocrine issue particularly in south Indian populace. This element might be because of the diminished iodine admission of that area or contrasts in geological dissemination or some other variables. Due to the significant expense and restricted accessibility of radioactive iodine, thyroidectomies are liked and normal in India. Thus in our audit we observed that absolute thyroidectomy is protected and savvy with low entanglement rates which ought to support this methodology of treatment in Indian populace. New high level strategies like endoscopy are accessible now for early finding as well concerning thyroid medical procedure. Not many insignificantly obtrusive ways to deal with thyroidectomy and furthermore progressed methodology like utilization of careful robots have additionally been attempted. Yet, there exists a debate over the job of the robot in thyroidectomy on the grounds that customary thyroidectomy strategy has displayed to have a low dismalness rate and creates phenomenal outcomes [5].
