This focused issue on “The Management of Thyroid Tumors in 2020 and Beyond” is edited by Dr. Jeremy D. Richmon, from Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; and Jonathon O Russell, from Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Dr. Jeremy Richmon is a fellowship-trained head and neck surgeon who specializes in head and neck cancer and microvascular reconstruction. He has become a pioneer in minimally-invasive robotic techniques in the head and neck. He was the first surgeon to perform transoral robotic surgery at Johns Hopkins in 2009 and developed a robust head and neck robotic surgery program of international renown. He has collaborated with engineers and computer scientists to bring the next generation of robotics into the clinical realm and began the robotic thyroid surgery program at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Jonathon O Russell is an Assistant Professor of Head and Neck Endocrine Surgeon and the Director of Endoscopic and Robotic Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery at Johns Hopkins. As such, he manages the broad range of thyroid and parathyroid surgical pathology and specializes in scarless transoral thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy. His treatment philosophy is that every patient deserves an individualized treatment strategy and that communication between physician and patient is the most important part of the healing process.
