Thyroid Tumor Ablation Comes of Age at National Thyroid Meeting.
Biggest news is thyroid tumor ablation gets a main stream use for treating the primary micro-papillary cancers INSIDE the thyroid gland instead or surgery or observation.

and recurrent cancer in neck lymph nodes.
Short Call Poster 52-
- THYROID NO SURGERY TUMOR ABLATION: BREAKTHROUGH METHODS AND TECHNOLOGY ARE HERE R.B. Guttler Short call poster on the new devices and techniques that are making it even safer to treat thyroid nodules, cysts, recurrent lymph node thyroid cancer and now even primary micro-papillary as alternative to saurgery or active surveillance.

S. Miracle A study out of Mexico on the use of Ethanol ablation to treat solid thyroid nodules not just cysts.

Pitt The decision to leave a cancer in the neck and do active surveillance is difficult for many patients and their families. That is why thyroid tumor ablation is a perfect fit those who dont want surgery or don’t want a cancer in the neck for years even after being told it is safe.

Y. Luo, Y. Guang, Y. Zhang, M. Zhang, N. Li, J. Tang Along with ethanol ablation PEI of cancer lymph nodes we have another treatment mode with radiofrequency ablation RFA. The field of Thyroid tumor ablation is expanding every day thanks to groups from Korea, China, Italy, and the USA.

Mizukami Japanese study once again showing a rare complication of injecting ethanol into the solid thyroid nodule.At present time RFA is the preferred way to ablate solid nodules.
The field of thyroid tumor ablation is a growing area of interest to like mined endocrinologists who are willing to train in these procedures to decrease the number of unnecessary thyroid surgeries on benign and in some thyroid cancers.
If you are interested in considering thyroid ablation as a patient or learning Thyroid ablation as endocrinologist, call Matt at 310-393-8860 or [email protected]
The future is bright for this new field now that we have two excellent non-surgical treatment methods for thyroid nodules,cysts and now primary and recurrent thyroid cancers.
Young endocrinologists need to learn this as it is the best future for you to become a clinical thyroid ablation specialist for your area of the country.
