Welcome to the Thyroid Ethanol and Radiofrequency Ablation Center of Santa Monica.

Master’s class in thyroid ethanol ablation PEI and Radiofrequency ablation RFA is now available to endocrinologists. A new procedures you can learn at my side for 3 days. ( check out master’s class section for details).

Since 1998 we have been treating thyroid patients with ethanol. This is called PEI. Most don’t know it is the treatment of choice for mixed benign thyroid and parathyroid cystic nodules. It is the preferred method to ablate a nodule without to need for a thyroid surgery. Primary physicians, surgeons and a surprising number of endocrinologists say the procedure is painful and dangerous. It is a safe outpatient 10-20 minute procedure done in my center. No hospital, scar, no need for thyroid hormone replacement for life, and no serious complications.

Since 2o02 since Radiofrequency was first used in Korea to a ablate solid benign thyroid nodules. 5 years ago I travel to Italy to train in thyroid RFA. I had several RF systems in my office and trained several thyroidologists. The Korean system with short probe and thin needle was the best available for thyroid work. It is still FDA approved in the USA for soft tissue.  This means it can be used for thyroid nodules but there are no codes and no thyroid FDA approval yet.  I did not want to wait until patients could have RFA in the USA. Therefore I have developed a candidate evaluation system to allow my patients to travel to Italy or Korea just to have the therapy. My patients are pre-approved and only stay for 2 days just for the treatment. They return to have me do the followup.I am training other interventional thyroidologists in the method and will begin clinical trials and finally will treat my patients in my center in Santa Monica. There is sections on this website and my top thyroid blog on both PEI and RFA. If you have a large benign nodule or cyst you need to read all about my alternative therapy options to a thyroid surgery. Also if you have had thyroid cancer after surgery, and neck dissection and have a recurrence consider PEI  or RFA in place of another surgery.

How does it work to get alternate ablation therapy?

Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation RFA

Out of Network Second Opinion Before Surgery for Thyroid Nodules and Cancer

How Does it work?

Ask for your records to be sent to a thyroid expert for review before you consider surgery as the correct treatment. Some patients turn out to not have cancer. Some have a tumor that was called cancer in the past but now is a benign tumor.Some have a small thyroid cancer that active surveillance like prostate cancer can be used instead of surgery. Also ethanol ablation or radiofrequency can ablate it while it is small as a third alternative. Come to see me for an evaluation before you you consider surgery.

Why a second opinion? It can confirm that you are doing the right thing.

2/10  did not agree with the original DX of cancer.

4/10 indeterminate FNA biopsies were confirmed on second opinion.

2/10 Indeterminate FNA biopsies were non-diagnostic on second opinion..

 4/10 indeterminate FNAs were benign on second opinion.

13/100 Indeterminate FNA biopsies on initial cytology had cancer at surgery.

30/100 indeterminate FNA biopsies from second opinion had cancer.

14/100 did not have cancer on second opinion.

5/10 indeterminate cases had a different diagnosis on second opinion.

43/100 indeterminate biopsies  had a definite benign result on second opinion.

  1. It can change the diagnosis.

  2. It can change the extent of surgery.

  3. It can find the type of cancer has been downgraded to benign.

  4. It can find that you had a nodule that was incompletely evaluated before recommending surgery.

  5. It can help you find non-surgical treatment for benign nodules and some thyroid cancers.

  6. It can find that your small cancer is harmless and can be best treated by just yearly ultrasounds or ethanol ablation instead of surgery.

  7. It can help you find alternative treatment specialists for small cancers in the thyroid and local recurrent cancers.

  8. It can determine if a nodule or cancer can be treated with minimally invasive ethanol or radio frequency ablation instead of surgery.

    9.Finally it can direct you to high volume thyroid surgeons with low complication rate.

  9. Second opinion is not a wasted time.It is giving you peace of mind that you are doing the right thing.

                                  Thyroid Ethanol Ablation

  1. Cystic thyroid and parathyroid benign nodules.
  2. Recurrent thyroid cancer neck lymph node metastatic disease.
  3. Primary encapsulated micro-papillary cancers  

Small <1.5 cm primary cancers as alternative if the patient does not want surgery or long periods with a cancer in the neck they can opt of ethanol ablation.

Before Ethanol Ablation PEI                            After 10 months post PEI

Management of recurrent and persistent metastatic lymph nodes in well-differentiated thyroid cancer: a multifactorial decision-making guide.

Dr.Guttler’s Comments:

1.Well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC) recurs in up to 30% of patients.

2.  They fail to guide the clinician as to the multitude of factors that should be taken into account.

3. The Thyroid Cancer Care Collaborative (TCCC) is a web-based repository of a patient’s clinical information.

4. Ten clinical decision-making modules (CDMMs) process this information and display individualized treatment recommendations.

5. Surgery remains the most common treatment in recurrent/persistent WDTC.

6.  However, careful observation may be the recommended course in select patients.

7. Reoperation yields biochemical remission rates between 21% and 66%.

8. There is a reported 1.2% incidence of permanent unexpected nerve paralysis and a 3.5% incidence of permanent hypoparathyroidism.

9. Percutaneous ethanol ablation has been reported as therapeutic alternatives.

10.Radioactive iodine is not primary therapy  for metastatic lymph nodes.

Ethanol ablation PEI saves money and is effective in ablating recurrent thyroid cancer lymph nodes.

Go to Mayo clinic and see Dr. Ian Hay. His study saved 35 patents $1.5 million in surgery costs and did not have one single major complication of nerve or parathyroid damage.

Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation RFA

  1. Surgical alternative for benign solid or mixed nodules.
  2. Surgical alternative for toxic and autonomous functioning thyroid nodules AFTN.
  3. Surgical alternative for Recurrent lateral neck lymph node metastatic papillary thyroid cancer.
  4. Surgical and Active surveillance alternative for primary micro-papillary <1.5 cm cancers.

Thyroid No Surgery: Very Large Benign Thyroid Nodules 101: Radiofrequency Ablation RFA can treat these massive nodules without surgery !

My patient just returned from Korea where her 10 cm nodule was ablated 90% with two sessions. She was done under local so the operator could tell if she had symptoms. Many places doing RFA put the patient to sleep and can’t monitor the voice. This allows discovery of symptoms after the procedure. She returned and told me there were no complications. Many operators will not do massive nodules and refer them to surgery.

This patient went to have RFA evaluation in Europe and because of the size of the nodule was told to have surgery instead.

img_0202-300x300

My patient had the exact size 10 cm nodule and traveled to Korea

and had two sessions of thyroid RFA with 90% reduction of the nodule.

She is planning to go back in 6 months to complete the ablation of the remaining 10%.

img_0027

If you are a patient with a large nodule and have put off the surgery for years

now is the time to remove it without surgery.

Call me at 310-393-8860 or email to thyroid.manager@protonmail.com

After I determine if you are a candidate for RFA I will arrange the treatment.

in Europe or Korea.

The evaluation includes a examination ultrasound and repeat FNA, molecular markers for cancer from the nodule.

We need to be sure there is no cancer with a low risk <3%.

Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month
This is my doctor.
He is amazing.

I was wary because he has reviews that are not favorable. Upon reading the reviews it’s clear that people have him poor reviews for two reasons 1) he does not take insurance so it is a lot of out of pocket expense and 2) He doesn’t go in for “natural” treatments because not a single “natural” cure has even been shown to have any effect whatsoever on thyroid disease. Patients need medication.
He is ALL about using non-invasive treatments whenever possible. He will exhaust options before recommending surgery or life-altering treatments.
He, along with a handful of colleagues, innovated the specialty of neck/thyroid ultrasound. He is kind, gentle, and above all, honest and real with his patients.
