Radiofrequency Ablation Thyroid Nodules and Cancer Comes to Santa Monica Thyroid Center.
The Star Med Corp from Korea came to my center in. California and put on a one day tutorial on modern uses for RFA when it comes to decreasing the number of thyroid surgeries. They described the history of RFA from the first paper in 2002 by the world expert Dr.JH Baek on RFA for benign thyroid nodules to the present Use in 2017 in Europe, Asia and now coming to the US in late 2017.
After lectures by Star Med staff and my lectures on my desire to continue to decrease thyroid surgeries when there was a first line alternative, there was a hands on workshop on the use of the smaller shorter probe.
