How would a person find out how many of these surgery's he has preformed this year? I wanted to asked but I was scared. I've read lots about these surgeries and everything states you should find someone that performs them often because it's easy to destroy vocal cords...I'm scared! Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Dr Brinkman recently did one of these on my stepdad. Dr Brinkman was great but my stepdad almost died after surgery. They took the tubes out. His throat collapsed. He was on a vent for 4 days in ICU and his IV bled out under his skin causing a huge chemical burn covering his hand. He had to have a skin graft to repair that. His surgery was on Sept 17th and he still hasn't been back to work. KDMC is awful.

Dr. Gregory Baker, ENT specialist did mine two years ago. He was absolutely wonderful, the surgery went very well, and I don't have a bad scar. I've only had three surgeries in my life, but it really was nothing.

I'm sorry but I know nothing about your doctor. Also, Dr. Roa is a very good doctor who does a lot of thyroidectomies. I didn't use him because he was out of network for me.

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your information! I was not excited about going to KDMC either. I'd much rather go somewhere else but when it comes to insurance not much choice! I actually have to see dr baker on Friday to check my vocal cords I may just asked to have a referral for him. My surgeon is a general surgeon but specialized n oncology I believe that's why I was originally sent to him but after the way he acted I'm not sure he does to very many and that concerns me!!

he did my wifes surgery last year and did a very good job....he said that due to the gorders her windpip was pushed to the side and was very hard to tube her....i would trrust him with my life and my wife would go back to him anytime.....he does that kind of surgery all the time and everyone that we talked to about him said that he was the best.....if you have not got a dr yet I would go with him.....good luck and god bless

Don't do it without research. I would find out if he or she has been in town long and would look online for his/her name. Be very careful of you are wary. Follow your instincts. Thyroid surgery is very serious. Dr Tompkins has been established for 15 plus years, so has dr wheeler. Be careful
