What is Thyroid Ablation and how
do I know if I should have it done?
Thyroid Ablation is the process of injecting thyroid nodules via a probe with heat to actually denature peptides within the cells that are creating the enlarging thyroid nodules or goiters. It is usually done using a neck ultrasound and a small needle in the clinic.
Dr. Brady now offers RFA (Radiofrequency Ablation) as a cutting edge treatment for thyroid nodules and goiters. This brand new RFA technique is a non-surgical option for appropriate patients to avoid a thyroid surgery and anesthesia. RFAshrinks thyroid nodules and saves thyroid function by using heat therapy. The RFA procedure is performed under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort.
