Massive Benign Nodule Treated in Three Sessions in Korea with Radiofrequency RFA.
My patient just returned from RFA session 2 of three to ablate her massive nodule. She was a sure case for surgery until she found my website. Traveling for the east coast to be evaluated in my center she was found to be a good case for RFA. However the nodule size was against a single session. Knowing she needed at least three sessions she agreed to the treatment protocol and the return visits to Korea. The first session ablated 40% of the nodule. Just returning from session 2 which ablated another 40%. She will return to Korea in 2019 to ablated the last 20%. Asked if this was worth not having thyroid surgery as recommended by her doctors in the USA, she said yes it is worth saving my thyroid.
She had no complications with the first two sessions and was treated in less than an hour this time and was not put to sleep and was awake throughout the procedure. She did not stay in the hospital overnight and had lunch after the procedure and returned to her hotel.
