Thyroid RFA in Houston: Dr. Cristina Boccalandro

Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Texas Endocrinology Group is pleased to offer the latest advances in non-surgical treatment options for thyroid nodules, with thyroid radiofrequency ablation (RFA).  RFA is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that uses heat generated, medium-frequency current to shrink benign thyroid nodules.  Performed in-office, under local anesthesia, RFA is a relatively painless procedure and an advantageous alternative to surgery as it maintains normal thyroid function.  To learn more about this procedure or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cristina Boccalandro at Thyroid and RFA Center for Excellence, please click here  for more information.
