Thyroid No Surgery 101: Throw away the old ways of treating benign thyroid nodules and small thyroid cancers.
The age of thyroid ablation with with radiofrequency ablation RFA is here now but is just beginning to take over the majority of treatment for benign thyroid nodules.
Have no doubt it is a very disruptive new treatment modality that will eventually take over from surgery, and from active surveillance.
Many new exciting uses for RFA in the neck include micropapillary thyroid cancer recurred cancer neck lymph nodes, parathyroid adenoma, and other neck cysts.
Active surveillance and surgery will become less and less desirable means of treatment of thyroid nodules and small thyroid cancers.
Most benign thyroid nodules and small indeterminate nodules and thyroid cancers will come to ablation without surgery.
The surgeons attention is directed toward thyroid surgery only will suffer the same fate as the dinosaurs.
To remain relevant in 2021 and beyond the endocrinologist must direct the practice to do their own ultrasounds, FNAB and obtain the skills needed to care for their patients without referral to the surgeons.
Santa Monica thyroid center and Dr.Guttler has the only private one on one training in ethanol PEI and RFA in the world. For 2 days he will train in all aspects of ablation and will finish with a live demonstration of actual ablations on his thyroid patients.
