The thyroid is a small gland shaped like a butterfly. It’s located in the lower front part of the neck, just below the voice box. The thyroid produces hormones that the blood carries to every tissue in the body. It helps regulate metabolism that helps in converting food to energy.
Sometimes the thyroid produces too much hormone. It may also develop structural problems, such as swelling and the growth of cysts or nodules. Thyroid surgery may be necessary when these problems occur. However it has to be noted that at Gurgaon ENT Centre, India not all thyroid problems need surgery, some of them can be treated through regular medications. Females may develop hyperthyroidism during the pregnancy period that can be treated through medications only. On the other hand in case there is a suspicious growth or swelling in thyroid gland then our best ENT Surgeon Dr Priyanjana generally advises certain radiological investigations followed by FNAC test to know the nature of growth. In case there is a chance that it may cause problem in future then a hemi or complete thyroidectomy is advised at Gurgaon ENT Centre, India
Thyroid cancer - Cancer is the most common reason for thyroidectomy. If you have thyroid cancer, removing most, if not all, of your thyroid will likely be a treatment option.
Noncancerous enlargement of the thyroid (goiter) - Removing all or part of your thyroid gland is an option if you have a large goiter that is uncomfortable or causes difficulty breathing or swallowing or, in some cases, if the goiter is causing hyperthyroidism.
Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)- Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. If you have problems with anti-thyroid drugs and don't want radioactive iodine therapy, thyroidectomy may be an option.
Suspicious thyroid nodules. Some thyroid nodules can't be identified as cancerous or noncancerous after testing a sample from a needle biopsy. Doctors may recommend that people with these nodules have thyroidectomy if the nodules have an increased risk of being cancerous.
There are several types of thryoid surgery that are performed at Gurgaon ENT Centre India by our chief ENT surgeon Dr Priyanjana A Sharma:
Lobectomy- Sometimes a nodule, inflammation, or swelling affects only half of the thyroid gland. When this happens, a doctor will remove only one of the two lobes. The part left behind should retain some or all of its function.
Sub-Total ThyroidectomyA subtotal thyroidectomy removes the thyroid gland but leaves behind a small amount of thyroid tissue. This preserves some thyroid function. We have seen at Gurgain ENT Centre that patients who have undergone sub-total thyroidectomy may develop hypothyroidism but that can be managed through medication and suppliments.
Sub-Total ThyroidectomyA total thyroidectomy removes the entire thyroid and the thyroid tissue. This surgery is appropriate when nodules, swelling, or inflammation affect the entire thyroid gland, or when cancer is present.
All the above surgeries are performed under general anaesthesia and patient needs to be in the hospital for about 2-3 days depending upon the type of surgery performed.
I absolutely loved the experience or having consulting her. I should have gone to her before. Extremely satisfied with the advices and initial treatments she suggested. She is really caring kind and explains the causes to the patients in the language they speak.
"Affection is a powerful medicine". I think that's what is her doctrine. Dr. Priyaranjana comes across as an angel, in those real tough times. Treatment and pills surely cure a disease, but love and affection is what makes all the difference. One of the most loving medical practitioner have ever come across. She is brilliant at her art and refined in her techniques. An absolute blend of intelligence and devotion in all what she does. Recently, gone through Tonsillectomy and Nasal Septoplasty in August 2018. It was one painful episode creating turbulence in my life for a month, but results were over whelming and worth all the pain and discomfort. I now breathe smooth with a better throat. Sigh of relief - making my living a lot more peaceful and productive. Plus this antibiotic and infection free living is so much fun and lively. Been associated with her for past two years gives me all the power and reason to write about her with absolute conviction. Not just during my surgery, she devoted her best in me, but have been encouraging through out my consultation with her over the years. I just don't recommend her, adore her completely. Doctors like her are rare. I respect her for living her profession with utmost honesty sincerity and love. We need more doctors like her, who are masters not just in their profession but winning hearts, wherever they go, and whatever they do.
Every time even a single drop of water in my left ear drum would lead to severe ear pain and infection. It was becoming a prolonged problem and finally in Apr’17, I decided to get it fixed. I started looking out for best ENT Specialist in Delhi, but could not find any because most of the specialists had mixed reviews. I was about to end my search, when I thought about looking out in NCR as well and Voila!! I found Dr. Priyanjana A Sharma with the best reviews ever and based on the online reviews, I decided to go for a consultation and I AM SO GLAD, I DID!! To begin with, she has all the patience in the world to hear you out properly. From the very first meeting with her, I knew it that she will cure me completely. She told me the problem with my ear drum is because of enlarged tonsillitis in my throat and adenoids in my nose. Within that same month, I decided to get it operated as advised by her. I wasn’t nervous at all and it was all because she is so convincing and has such a gentle touch, that I was completely assured at the back of my mind, that I am in safe hands. My surgery was successful and I recovered within 15 days. Not only her “before” and “during” the surgery care is extraordinary but even post-surgery, she took care of me very well. Even today, if I face any difficulty she is only a phone call away and that’s so comforting!! Her reviews helped me a lot and that’s why, I am writing a review for her today because she totally deserves one. If you have any ENT problem, I strongly recommend you to please visit Dr. Sharma once and you will be grateful to her forever, like I am. THANK YOU Doctor, you are truly a blessing, the most ingenious inspirer of hope. Thank you for everything you have done to keep me in best of spirits. I wish the best for you always.
Few months back I had a troublesome sinus infection and was suffering from earache and headaches due to sinus blockage.After visiting few doctors I finally luckily found Dr. Priyanjana. She looked into my reports and explained all the problems and prescribed alternate medicines for some of the steroids I was taking from previous doctor's prescription. We discussed about the solutions and I had FESS and septoplasty surgery performed by her.She clearly explained the procedures and how I would feel in the recovery period.I am writing this review 6 weeks after the surgery and I am finally feeling a LOT better now. She is a genuine doctor, very true to her profession and a humble human being.Thanks ma'am.
Her credentials already say how good a doctor she is, so i may not be required to say that again here. You may find good doctors who can cure you, all around the world. But with Dr. Acharya you have your doctor always with you (just a call away) all around the world. Always happy to help. With very few doctors I have seen such commendable commitment to be there for your patient whenever one is need. Kudos !

Doctor with multiple degrees is useless if he/she don't listen and satisfy psychologically a patients. Dr. Priyanjana understand the patients concern very sciencerly which helps a lot in overall treatment. Dr. Priyanjana is a beautiful person, talented and dedicated professional. She don't hype the problem rather cool down the patient logically and do her job best...now a days its rare in medical field. ultimate doctor!!!
It was my first surgery in my life and i was really scared & nervous.The thought of hospitalization is scary and traumatizing. But caring doctors like you make it friendly and pleasing. Thanks for your effective analysis and diagnosis, really thank you Dr Priyanjana
