  1. The 2017 Thyroid RFA guidelines from the Korean Society of Thyroid Radiology was a wake up call for USA providers of thyroid care for their patients.
  2. Thyroid RFA is a disruptive technology with major implications for USA thyroid physicians.
  3. Active surveillance, which is just following patients with micro-papillary cancers and small indeterminate nodules and thyroid surgery will become less desirable now with thyroid RFA entrance into the USA market place.
  4. Most benign thyroid nodules and small cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules and micro-papillary cancers will come to thyroid RFA.
  5. Surgeon’s with only attention toward thyroidectomy, remote access and robotic surgery will come to suffer the same fate as the dinosaurs.images
  6. Endocrinologists and other physicians treating thyroid nodules and cancer must acquire Neck/thyroid ultrasound,  FNA,  and direct skills in thyroid RFA to remain relevant in all aspects of thyroid nodule and cancer care.
  7. All endocrinologists who want to be considered expert in treatment of thyroid nodules and cancer must consider training in thyroid RFA now.
  8. There are multiple group training programs.

  10. At www.thyroid.com I offer the only private course designed for one physician only. It is 2 days of workshop with practice ablations on bovine liver and turkey breasts. This is followed by student observation of actual thyroid nodule cases that are ablated by Dr.Guttler.
