I appreciate the small scar and have had very few side affects from full thyroidectomy performed by Dr. Prinz in 2011. I do have hypocalcemia, but I don't think it could have been avoided. Parathyroids were too small. I have been happy and healthy for years after the surgery. I also have not experienced weight gain/loss, hair loss, or other illnesses similar to those I read about. I jog often and have very few problems...Glad Dr. Prinz performed my surgery...Thanks!
