The history of thyroid surgery is inextricably linked with the formation of general surgical principles and owes its success not only to the pioneers who boldly take their first scientifically based steps, but also to instrumental and anesthesiological support that allows operations to be performed safely and effectively. As with any history, thyroid surgery had its own misconceptions, mistakes, and successes, behind which there are not only the names of famous physicians, but also the lives of patients. This literature review presents a historical sketch of the development of thyroid surgery from its first mention to its further development prospects.
