Thyroid No Surgery 101: Ethanol Ablation PEI for Cystic Nodules

Recent patient kindly took time to review my treatment of her thyroid cyst on Yelp.

I went to see Dr. Guttler with a large fluid filled cyst/nodule on my thyroid. All the doctors I had seen previously recommended surgery to take out the thyroid. They all claimed not to know about any other treatments which seemed really fishy to me. Anyway, I googled for alternatives and thankfully found Dr. Guttler in Santa Monica. He performs a treatment called PEI – percutaneous ethanol injection – that got rid of the cyst in just one office visit! No surgery and only minimal discomfort. I just got back from a follow up visit with ultrasound a year later and that thing is still gone! I still can’t believe that this problem was so easy to treat and without the pain, risk and recovery of surgery. No hospital, minimal pain and no scarring. If you have any sort of thyroid issues or you’re getting conflicting information, I highly recommend you see. Dr. Guttler!

Call 310-393-8860 if you have a thyroid cystic nodule to see if you are a candidate for PEI.
