While you are awake: Outpatient Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation RFA for nodules: Endocrine office procedure. No hospital based radiologists or ENT surgeons needed! 1/3-1/6 the cost in my office based thyroid practice.
Outpatient Thyroid RF for nodules: No hospital needed!
This video from Germany is shown not for the system used but for the fact the operator did the procedure in his ultrasound room. Many videos of thyroid RF show the procedure being done in the hospital with many unnecessary hands on board.There is only gloves used no masks. No massive vital signs and IV equipment. He used a nurse only and did his own ultrasound monitoring. We see the operator use antiseptic spray to clean the neck.This is similar to my method. Also the patient is awake, and no general or conscience sedation is used. The pain management is with local Lidocaine injected in the space just outside the thyroid capsule were there are sensory nerves. There are no nerves inside the thyroid or nodule.
Please notice the patient is seen right after with a nodule slightly swollen but without pain and leaves directly with just a small band aide over her injection site.Over 3-12 months the nodule shrinks and the symptoms and cosmetic problems are relieved.
