Who should do Radiofrequency Ablation of a Thyroid Problem?

  1. Radiologists and interventional radiologists are generalists who do everything.
  2. Liver,varicose veins, and more and have no training in thyroid diseases.
  3. They can do a thyroid nodule. But shouldn’t you want an expert in thyroidology to do the evaluation and treatment?
  4. Some Endocrinologists are interventional thyroidologists doing ethanol ablation and RFA on just thyroid nodules and cancer.
  5. Radiologists tend to have large overheads whether in a hospital or free standing imaging center. Endocrinologists doing thyroid RF have only an RF system and that’s all. Radiologists need other expensive systems to do all the other RF treatments.rfg
  6. Without naming prices the fees for Thyroid Nodule RFA in the hospital or imaging center is overpriced with bloated hospital bills with useless expenses added.
  7. Same in a imaging center.
  8. You don’t need monitoring of your vital signs or sterile head to toe gowning. in an office setting. These are available in my office but only if  rarely needed.
  9. No general or conscience sedation is needed. Local infiltration of the thyroid capsule where all the sensory nerves are located is cheap and easy.
  10. You don’t need a group of  nurses and techs in the room. Just my ultrasound tech and me is all that is needed.
  11. Very few radiologists have had 5 years experience working with Thyroid RF systems in their office.
  12. Thyroid RF systems are specially designed just for thyroid and the neck area. They have shorter needles and thinner bore size.
  13. Yes there are world expert RF operators who have done thousands of cases in Korea and Europe but not in the USA.
  14. Come see me for you evaluation.
