What Preop Examination Do You Do For Adam’s Apple Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, May I ask specific which kind of examinations (Endoscopic, CT-scan, through the nose, through the mouth etc.) do you perform on patients before you perform an Adam’s apple reduction surgery on them?

A: The most meaningful preoperative examination for thyroid cartilage reduction is a 3D CT scan of the neck.
