June 2017 – Dr Suh

I recently had a thyroidectomy performed by Dr. Suh. I cannot say enough about the kind, courteous and professional treatment that I received from him and his staff. My surgery went well and he explained everything to me both before and after my surgery. He was always available to answer my questions and concerns and his staff was the same. I had a great experience and I am happy to say that my recovery is going extremely well thanks to Dr. Suh. I highly recommend him to anyone undergoing...

2017 – Dr Suh performs successful thyroid and parathyroid surgery

Dr. Hyunsuk Suh performed parathyroid surgery and thyroid surgery on my left side. The nodule had measured 5 and as Dr. Suh found no spreading of any nodules, he was able to remove only the left side of my thyroid. My thyroid should behave properly now without further meds. Dr. Suh has an outstanding bed side manner and gave me great confidence and a great sense of well being. My recovery has been fabulous and I highly recommend Dr. Suh and his wonderful nurse, Dawn to make your experience...

2017 – Patient praises Dr Suh for outstanding care, robotic thyroid surgery

My Name is Jasmine and I've been a patient of Dr.Suh since February of this year. I was referred to him because there was a nodule found on the right side of my thyroid measuring 5cm big with cancer found in it. From the day I walked into Dr. Suh's office he was on top of my case as if I was his only patient. I have nothing but positive experiences with him. The offices are extremely comfortable and clean. the receptionist are so amazing people, very professional but yet compassionate....

2017 – Dr Suh performs BABA robotic scarless thyroid surgery on grateful patient

After discovering that I had a 3cm lump on my left thyroid, I met with Dr. Hyunsuk Suh to go over my options. I was nervous about the size of the lump and the risk that it was cancerous (even though my biopsy came back benign). He was extremely thorough in walking me through my options, one of which was the BABA robotic scarless surgery. I tend to get keloid scars and am very fair-skinned, and I really didn't want a large scar cutting across my neck. After much consideration and discussion...

2017- Dr Suh, assisted by Dr Inabnet, performs first BABA “hidden scar” lymph node dissection for thyroid cancer in the US

Last year, a couple of months after my birthday, I was diagnosed with papillary cancer on the left side of my thyroid. Finding the right surgeon was very important to my family and me. My parents and I didn't want me to have a visible scar in the center of my neck. They found a video on youtube of a thyroid procedure that was done without scarring. We immediately went to see Dr. Inabnet to have this type of procedure done. However, I was not a candidate for this type of surgery because the...

2017 – Dr Suh calms anxious patient undergoing thyroid surgery

When I first went to Dr. Hyunsuk Suh, I was scared and worried over the possibility of thyroid cancer after results showed my nodule grew to 5 cm. Dr. Suh instantly made me feel comfortable and gave undivided attention to examine my thyroid. I had numerous experience with doctors who dealt with patient as a routine task. I was pleasantly surprised by how much Dr. Suh cared and took all the measures to make me feel comfortable. There was no delay. All the tests were done quickly and I was...

2017 – Former model undergoes “hidden scar” thyroid surgery

It is a true pleasure to be sharing my experience with Dr. Suh. At age 19, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's Disease and Thyroid Nodules. I was told that I had a nodule that was 4.1 centimeters and that a normal thyroid was approx 4 centimeters. Combine that with the other smaller nodules, it was very enlarged and causing discomfort. Two years ago I went to my Endocrinologist and he said that it would need to be removed. We did a biopsy and thankfully, it was benign. He...

Review for Dr. Hyunsuk Suh and the Thyroid Program

I am writing this testimony in great appreciation of my wonderful experience and to help young women and men AVOID traditional Thyroid surgeries that force you to be admitted to the hospital with drains, a lot of pain, frequent blood draws and not to mention a neck scar for the rest of your life and you will most probably be taking synthroid medication for the rest of your life because you removed all natural hormonal functions your...

2016 – A singer rediscovers her voice after having Dr Suh perform her thyroid surgery

For the last 20 years I've been debating the idea of having surgery of my goiter which was getting bigger and bigger everyday. I went for surgery about 16 years ago when I decided to decline having the procedure on the day of the surgery. When I met Dr. Suh this past November he made me feel so comfortable that I had no second thought going thru with the surgery. In two days I was home recuperating. In a week I have noticed that my breathing has gotten better. The best part of my...

2016 – Large thyroid nodule removed by “scarless” robotic BABA thyroidectomy by Drs Inabnet and Suh

img_2839 Large visible goiter before the surgery.

On October 26, 2016 I underwent my first ever surgical procedure at the age of 36. Of course I wish it didn’t have to happen, but after my first pregnancy a right thyroid nodule was found and was being monitored. After my second pregnancy it increased in size and surgical option was being recommended. I consulted with my ENT and inquired if she had any recommendations. I actually asked, if you had what I have, who would you go to? Without...

Robotic “scarless” thyroid surgery by Dr. Suh

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...

2016 – Thyroid patient very satisfied with care rendered by Dr Suh

I had a 8-centimeter right thyroid gland removed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel by Dr. Suh in the Summer of 2016. Dr. Suh was very patient with me and calmed down my worries by giving clear answers to all my questions--big and small. The cut on my neck was very small considering the size of the thyroid gland and is almost invisible now (three months after the surgery). I only experienced pain for two days after the surgery. I am highly recommending Dr. Suh for a thyroid surgery.

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...

See hand-written bill from thyroid surgery performed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in 1946

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!

2016 – Hidden-scar “scarless” Robotic Thyroid surgery by Dr. Suh

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...
