2016 – Grateful patient travels from Alaska to New York to undergo thyroid surgery under local anesthesia at Mount Sinai

In 2015 a 5 cm right side thyroid nodule was found.  The compression symptoms soon became very noticeable. Living in Alaska I knew I had to find a specialized  surgeon out of state. I literally scanned the Internet for months. Dr. Inabnet's name came up as a leading surgeon. He was the only one who agreed to talk to me by phone several times before I committed to travel to NYC. His scheduler, Angelika, was very understanding and worked with me multiple times when my travel dates fell...

The patient in the photo had her right thyroid gland removed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in March 2016. Her surgery took 40 min and she spent a total of 3.5 hours in the hospital. In 1946, the patient's mother-in-law underwent the same operation at Mount Sinai Beth Israel - a copy of the bill is shown on the left. Of note, the patient spent 21 days in the hospital at a cost of $23.50!! Truly incredible!

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...

2016 – Dr Suh performs “scarless” robotic thyroid surgery on very grateful patient

I am a 34 yr. old female, who was being monitored for approximately 2 years over at Montefiore. My Doctor recommended thyroid surgery from our first initial visit as the thyroid was biennial after the biopsy results came back but the size of my nodule on my right side was of concern. I refused to do the surgery as I was overly concern of my appearance especially at my young age. I did not want to have a scar on my neck especially since I did not have Cancer or any other severe medical...
