Is radiofrequency ablation an option for my thyroid nodule?

If you have been told that there is no alternative to surgical excision of your thyroid nodule, you have been given outdated advice. Radiofrequency ablation of thyroid nodules is an excellent alternative.

This technique allows thyroid nodules to be reduced in size without a surgical incision or a trip to the operating room. The overwhelming majority of thyroid nodules are benign, and historically surgery has been the only way to remove visible or symptomatic nodules. Though successful and extremely safe, surgery is not without risk of needing to take thyroid supplement medication, or unappealing cosmetic result from a neck incision.

The procedure is performed in the office, without general anesthetic, with virtually no downtime.

Inquire today for a consultation to see if saving your thyroid is a feasible treatment option for you.
