Thyroidectomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If you have a problem with your thyroid gland, your doctor may recommend thyroidectomy. Your thyroid gland is located over your larynx, or voice box. It wraps around your trachea, or windpipe. Your thyroid produces a hormone called thyroid hormone, and secretes it directly into your bloodstream. Your body uses thyroid hormone to increase your energy and raise your body temperature. When necessary, for example, these effects help offset the heat your body loses when exposed to cold weather. Your doctor may recommend thyroidectomy if you have certain thyroid cancers, an enlargement of the gland called a goiter, benign nodules, cysts, or an overactive thyroid. Before your procedure, an intravenous line will be started. You may be given antibiotics through the IV to decrease your chance of infection. You will be given general anesthesia. A breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and down your throat to help you breathe during the operation. To begin, your surgeon will make a small horizontal incision in your neck. Depending on the reason for your surgery, your surgeon will remove one lobe of your thyroid or the entire gland. Your surgeon may put a surgical drain in your incision to remove excess fluid. The drain will remain there for a day or two. At the end of your procedure, the incision will be closed with stitches, staples, surgical glue, or closure tape dressings. After your procedure, your breathing tube will be removed, and you will be taken to the recovery area for monitoring. Your surgeon may check your larynx for injury. You'll be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. Most patients are released from the hospital one or two days after the procedure. Your doctor may prescribe calcium supplements. If your entire thyroid is removed, you will take daily thyroid hormone replacement medication.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."
