What happens after the Thyroid RF procedure?

  1. Outpatient follow up with  neck examination and ultrasound for 1 -24 months or longer..
  2. Repeat Thyroid RF if the nodule fails to decrease enough or the cosmetic problem is only partially resolved.

Comments: Present state is Thyroid RF is not FDA approved in the USA, and patients need to travel to Italy or Korea. This is arranged by referral after my evaluation. The patient will only have to stay 2 days just for the treatment.
