The article reflects on the study on the surgical management of hyperthyroidism. According to some surgeons, ideal therapeutic intervention for thyrotoxicosis will effectively stop the disease and maintain the euthyroid state. However, the author suggests that lobectomy for a solitary toxic nodule is the suitable surgical intervention.
