Dr. Richard Harding is an expert in thyroid care, with 28 years of experience in evaluating and removing hundreds of thyroid glands per year. He is proud to offer RFA as a safe and effective option for his patients with benign thyroid nodules.
RFA, or Radiofrequency ablation, is a non-surgical treatment that can transform the lives of people with large benign thyroid nodules. It uses internal energy to target and destroy the unwanted tissue, while preserving the healthy outer thyroid gland and its function.
RFA has many advantages over conventional surgery or RAI, such as lower risk of primary hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone), faster recovery, and no scarring.
Our patients are very happy with the results of the RFA procedure, which allows them to avoid thyroid surgery and its complications. They can go home right after the treatment and resume their normal activities.
