Non Surgical Treatment for Benign Thyroid Nodules
New Center Brings Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy to Sarasota
Even if they’re benign, thyroid nodules can greatly impact your quality of life, creating unsightly swelling in your neck, making it difficult or uncomfortable to swallow, and sometimes even affecting your ability to breathe easy throughout the day. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) provides a non-surgical alternative to reduce or shrink these nodules right in the doctor’s office.
Performed by world-renowned thyroid and parathyroid surgeon, Dr. Ralph P. Tufano, this quick and minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency waves and heat — instead of blades and incisions — to treat the nodule, rarely ever compromising overall thyroid function.
