Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation RFA is a Major Advance

Thyroid RFA is not available in the USA today but will be soon.Until then to avoid a surgery that could be complicated, SMTC’s Dr.Guttler is offering a chance to have thyroid RFA now. The evaluation and referral system is a sure way to avoid surgery, and a scar. Also the fees are less than 10% of the surgery bill. The complications are minor and less than surgery. There is little chance of needing thyroid hormone after thyroid RFA while 30% of surgery patients need it.

After my evaluation finds you to be a candidate for thyroid RFA, I will arrange a trip to either Seoul Korea or Reggio Emillia Italy for a 2 day visit. Professor Baek in Seoul and Valcavi in Italy will accept my complete evaluation so there is no need for further time consuming re-evaluation. Thyroid RFA one day. Exit ultrasound day 2 and then fly home. I will do the followup. Call Matt at 310-393-8860 or email for details

LOR on recent thyroid Ablation 5 day Master’s class

“I attended Dr. Guttler’s Master Class as someone who has been interested in thyroidology since medical school. Dr. Guttler’s master’s class was instrumental in my learning of advanced noninvasive thyroid interventional techniques.” “During the 5-day course, we reviewed and practiced percutaneous ethanol ablation for thyroid cysts and recurrent thyroid cancer lymph nodes and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for thyroid nodules. Dr.Guttler uses a wide array of real-time patient encounters, follow-up patient visits to assess the impact of therapy, various modeling techniques, simulation labs, high-level videos, and tutorial sessions geared toward learning these non-invasive techniques.” “Since attending the course, I have been able to successfully integrate these advanced practices into my own clinical thyroid practice. I highly recommend Dr. Guttler and his Masters Course to anyone wanting to become an expert in thyroid clinic practice. “
