Dr. Kim’s major research interests are thyroid cancer and related surgery. His research mainly focuses on the preservation of function of the laryngeal nerves with intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) during thyroid surgery, and development of robotic transoral thyroid surgery that might be referred as the NOTES (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery) for thyroid gland, which, in turn, enabled him to perform the successful robotic transoral thyroidectomy in the real living patient primarily in the world. He has authored more than 60 articles on this topic published in peer-reviewed journals to date.
Professor Tae received his MD and Ph.D. from the Hanyang University in 1985 and 1995 respectively. He has published more than 200 articles.
