Who we are ?

Incidence of thyroid disease has seen an exponential rise in the past few decades across the globe. Management of thyroid disorders requires an integrated team effort between head and neck surgeons, general surgeons, otolaryngologists, endocrinologists and nuclear medicine physicians.

This made apparent the need to gather all the luminaries in the field of management of thyroid cancers across the specialties and from across the length and breadth of our country to share their experience and wisdom. The aim is to raise the academic bar at a national level and have an opportunity to interact with experts across the specialties who have made considerable and commendable contribution in the science of thyroid cancer management in our country.

Our attempt is also to bring out some consensus on guidelines which can best address our patients given our infrastructure constraints, limitations of training and research facilities. It will be a great academic and constructive step towards uniform patient management with sound evidence based philosophy across our country.In brief, we would like to break the myth of “Low resource, High Volume” and come up with scientific guidelines suited to all of us in all different locations. Therefore, the formation of Indian Society of Thyroid Surgeons, a dedicated body for better research and development in the field of thyroid.
