Dr William B Inabnet III was the keynote speaker at an endocrine surgery course in Barcelona: the 2016 International Debates in Endocrine Surgery. He presented the Mount Sinai experience on remote access endoscopic thyroid surgery, including the transaxillary approach and the robotic bilateral axilla-breast approach (BABA) that has been championed by Dr Hyun Suh at Mount Sinai. Dr Inabnet performed a live demonstration of an endoscopic transaxillary right thyroid lobectomy; of note the patient was a physician. The operation was a success and proved to be highly educational for the 125 Spanish and European surgeons in attendance. We believe that this case was the first endoscopic transaxillary case to be performed in Spain.
I recently had a surgery in the Mount Sinai hospital. My GP recommended Mount Sinai as the best clinic in the city. I made an appointment with Dr. Hyunsuk Suh and my very first impression was that he is very professional and experienced. More importantly he is very attentive to his patients. It’s worth mentioning that Dr Suh is an assistant professor of surgery. What I liked the most is the fact that he discussed every little detail with me and suggested ways to treat my disease, so it was easy for me to decide and go for the procedure he recommended – robotic surgery as to avoid having scar on my neck. My surgery went well and I returned home the same day, no pain except when I swallowed. I returned to work 10 days later. It’s been 2 months since my surgery and I feel great. My scars – 4 incisions – 2 on underarms and 2 on nipples are barely visible. I am a healthy and happy person. I would recommend Dr Hyunsuk Suh of Mount Sinai to anyone. You will be in every good and reliable hands. I hope my feedback is helpful. I wish you all good luck.More
