Caption: Thyroid operation. Close-up of a subcuticular suture stitch being performed in a thyroid incision. Subcuticular (below the epidermis) stitches are made to bring together the edges of a surgical wound, but in such a way that the suture runs below the skin along the wound edges. Surgery on the thyroid gland can be to remove part or all of the gland, usually due to benign or cancerous growths (tumours). The thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system, with the hormones released by the thyroid gland regulating a number of body systems.
