This color atlas is a detailed guide on how to perform open, endoscopic, and robotic thyroidectomy techniques safely and effectively. Each chapter offers step-by-step descriptions of essential surgical procedures and techniques. Relevant information is included on surgical anatomy, and clear guidance is provided on preoperative set-up, draping, instrumentation, and complications and their treatment. The description of endoscopic thyroidectomy techniques focuses on the bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA), while in the case of robotic thyroidectomy both BABA and the bilateral axillo-postauricular approach are described. In each case, the evidence supporting the technique is carefully examined. In the closing chapter, the role of new energy sources in thyroid surgery is discussed. The lucid text is supported by more than 200 full-color illustrations clarifying surgical anatomy, instrumentation, and procedures, and surgical video clips are also available to readers via a website. This atlas will be invaluable in enabling surgeons to achieve optimal outcomes when performing thyroid surgery.

In the modern history of thyroid surgery, the development of techniques became more effective and less invasive. There were also many signifi cant scientifi c developments during this period. Awareness of the thyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone and the development of general anesthesia and hemostats were very important steps to perform thyroid surgery safely and effectively. As the laparoscopic procedures were developed in early 1980s, Huscher and Gagner per- formed the fi rst endoscopic thyroid surgery and parathyroid surgery in 1997 and 1996. Growth continued through the late 1990s, and the robotic operation system was introduced in the early 2000s. There are two main reasons for conducting oncoplastic (AKA minimally invasive) thyroid surgery. First, the incidence of thyroid surgery is increasing. In Korea, the incidence of thyroid carcinoma has been increased by more than 200 % from the year 1995 to 2002. Second, patients desire a good cosmetic outcome. Thyroid cancer is particularly prevalent in young women, which increases the concern about postoperative neck scars; moreover, the prognosis of thyroid cancer is favorable, which places particular emphasis on quality-of-life issues. These issues mean that thyroid cancer management should be based on an oncoplastic concept where both complete surgical resection of the thyroid gland and the cosmetic outcome are pursued simultaneously. As a surgeon performing both conventional open thyroid surgery and oncoplastic thyroid surgery for many years, I kept on trying to perform safer and more feasible thyroid surgery to help shoulder burden of patients. And I also kept on working to help surgeons to learn safe and effective thyroid surgery. It is a great honor for me to have an opportunity to publish this book, Color Atlas of Thyroid Surgery. I am extremely glad to work with Doctor Lee and Choi who made this publication possible. I hope that this textbook could help the surgeons from many countries to put steps into the world of thyroid surgery.
