Spotlight on Dr.Guttler’s 2020 RFA Treatment Problems due to the Pandemic.
After years waiting for FDA approval to use RFA for thyroid nodules it happened in 2018.
Just when we were getting up to speed and doing 16 thyroid nodules the pandemic hit.
After 3 months isolation we opened for patients to be evaluated for RFA.
We did several cases in July but the waiting list was getting longer as few dared to travel to
see me. I patient planned to come by RV from Georgia. Several plan to drive but these are the exception.
The follow up cases also are not returning after the RFA treatment. The study is on hold until patients
are feeling safe to come to see me.

We can evaluate you and treat if you are willing to come to see me.
