This is an operation that is used to remove part or all of the thyroid gland. A thyroidectomy may be required to treat a thyroid lump or tumour. In addition to malignancies, a thyroidectomy is additionally a practical choice for patients with symptomatic thyroid masses or goiters. Patients who have compressive manifestations including dysphagia, dyspnea and shortness of breath because of a huge goiter may need a thyroidectomy.

A parotidectomy is an operation to remove part or all of the parotid salivary gland. The main purpose is to remove lumps or tumours arising fro the parotid gland. A superficial parotidectomy includes removing the greater part of the organ superficial to the facial nerve, while a partial superficialparotidectomy includes expelling just the bit of the organ encompassing a tumor or mass. In an incomplete superficial parotidectomy, just some branches of the facial nerve are monitored, while in a formal superficial parotidectomy, the whole cervicofacial and temporofacial divisions are traced.

Salivary gland stone removal
Stones may form in one or more of the salivary glands due to aggregation of salts in the saliva. Once large they can block the flow of saliva and thus cause enlargement of the gland or recurrent infections. Sometimes these stones can be removed directly, or with the help of an endoscope (Sialendsocoscopy).
Branchial cyst and fistula
A branchial cyst is a developmental anomaly resulting in the formation of a cyst in the side of the neck. Surgery may be required if it is very large or to prevent repeated infections. With surgical extraction, complete excision is targeted. Frequently however, the tracts of the cysts may go close vital structures, for example, the internal jugular vein, or facial nerve, making complete extraction unrealistic.
