RFA is not available in the USA but if the patient is willing to travel for this 20 minute procedure it can be arranged by a visit to see me at my center.

    Hello,
    To make this quick. I have a 3.3CM nodule on the R. I was set twice to have a partial TT, I cancelled twice, once was today. Instead I had a FNB done less than an hour ago on the solid nodule to rule out cancer. Mayo in Rochester,Mn has done two RFA on SN mine would be the third , I’m trying to get my insurance to cover it. Thoughts or suggestions on another route to take?
    Thank yiu

      Hi Joyce,
      Mayo Clinic can’t treat you without surgery.
      I can evaluate you and if you are a candidate send you
      to Italy or Korea. Thyroid RFA leading experts can that your 3 cm
      nodule without surgery or scar and without the need for thyroid hormone after.
      I need all your thyroid records and the biopsy slides from all the FNAs sent to me. You may not need another biopsy.
      DNA mutations and microRNA classifier can be done off the slides.
      Call Alicia at 310-393-8860 or email to thyroid.manager@protonmail.com for details.
      Thyroid RFA is proven safe everywhere but here as FDA and companies have been slow to get approval.
      I have direct pipeline to both centers and you would be in country for just 2-3 days for treatment procedure
      Come see me.
      Dr.G.
