Currently, most of the thyroidectomies are being done under general anesthesia (GA). Sometimes superficial cervical plexus block (SCPB) may be used if the patient is not for GA. Daycare hemithyroidectomy (HT) can be safely performed under SCPB for small benign thyroid nodules. The HT under SCPB is not associated with intubation-related complications, no need for hospitalization, early return to home, and economical surgery.
