Thyroid RF Treatment at the Santa Monica Thyroid Center: Watch the Treatment While you are Awake From A Ceiling Mirror.
Some patients want to have a blindfold on but are awake to answer any questions on how they are feeling.
A new way to have thyroid RF is to not only be awake but watch the treatment real time from our mirror over the table.
Thyroid RF requires no general or conscience sedation and is not done in the hospital by radiologists.
The patient leaves after a short observation period. There is no scar or post surgery hangover. The treatment is less expensive to similar RF treatments by radiologists in a hospital. There are few complication and vast majority are transient.
Here is a list of thyroid conditions that can be treated by thyroid RF.
- Benign mostly solid thyroid nodules.
- Partial cystic/solid nodules can have the fluid drained before the RF treatment of the solid part.
- Recurrent papillary thyroid cancer in neck lymph nodes after prior neck dissection.
- Primary micro-papillary thyroid cancers instead of surgery or long term follow up with the cancer still in the neck ( Active Surveillance).
- Autonomous Functioning Thyroid Nodules with low TSH instead of radiation treatment with radioiodine or surgery.
- Thyroglossal Duct Cyst instead of surgery with a high neck scar.
- FDA approved Thyroid RF treatment is now being done by Dr.Guttler after 5 years of training and climaxed with a treatment of a human case in Brazil with supervision by Dr.Leonardo Rangel in Rio.
- Now is the time to fix the symptomatic nodules or cosmetic issues.
