How Much Does a Thyroidectomy Cost?

A thyroidectomy is a procedutre performed in which all the parts of the thyroid gland are surgically removed.  The thyroid gland is a part of the body that controls how quickly the body uses energy.  It also controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones and it makes proteins.  This body organ is susceptible to getting different diseases as well as other types of illnesses such as cancer.  The things that we eat and the activity level that we maintain as well as our overall lifestyle can all affect the well-being of our thyroid gland.  If the thyroid gland is not functioning correctly or is damaged, a thyroidectomy can be performed.

Was it worth it?  

  1. Daniel McCormick (Santa Fe,  New Mexico) paid $$17,000 and said:

    The surgery was very worth it ($17,000; $2,000 with insurance); however, of note are the expensive imaging tests that have to be preformed before the surgery. This varies, of course, on weather or not the doctor suspects its thyroid cancer or not. In the case for me, I had to: 1) get an ultra sound ($500); 2) have a CAT scan with imaging done ($2000); and 3) a Biopsy done ($1200). I had a rare case of a benign follicular neoplasum; however, make sure to get only the required tests done to avoid excess cost and research about your condition so you are informed when you talk to your doc. Also, after the syrgery, request Armour Thyroid. Go to to find out more about why taking synthetic thyroid hormones, levothyroxine, for example, are very bad for you and about the benefits of Armour Thyroid. Having tried both, Armour Thyroid wins hands down. It gives you better energy, faster metabolism, and, as far as I can tell, a better immune system (I have not been sick in over 8 months). Best of luck to all 😀

    Was it worth it? : Yes
