  1. In 2018 no one should have surgery for a thyroid cyst without evaluation to see if ethanol ablation PEI, treatment of choice for thyroid and parathyroid cysts could be indicated.
  2. US physicians rarely recommend PEI thinking it is a painful and dangerous procedure.This is wrong.
  3. Mayo clinic and many private  interventional thyroidologists do the procedure.
  4.  Ayesha Curry had a serious surgery to remove her thyroid that left her with scar, and left her recovering from the surgery for weeks.
  5. It also may have left her needing thyroid hormone for life.
  6. While PEI is a short 15 minute procedure that leaves no scar, and does not change normal thyroid function.
  7. Even famous sports stars may get the wrong advice.
  8. Sorry Stephen. You should have asked for outside second opinion on alternatives as thyroid cyst surgery is elective not an emergency.
  9. Don’t let this happen to you. Call me at 310-393-8860 or thyroid.manager@protonmail.com for details and ask for Alicia.

 Ayesha Curry, wife of Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, underwent a successful surgery that removed her thyroid and cyst.
Successful but probably unnecessary!
