    29:38

    Looking for a radiofrequency ablation doctor? 🔹www.rfamd.com🔹 Radiofrequency Ablation 🛑 REMOVE Thyroid Nodules 🛑 NO SURGERY 🛑 Dr Ralph Tufano During this podcast, the following topics are discussed: ✅advocate for patients to be as well informed as possible and consider all treatment options for thyroid problems, including avoiding surgery whenever possible and radiofrequency ablation. ✅ five thousand dollars out of pocket and save your thyroid with radiofrequency ablation or thyroidectomy and maybe nothing out of pocket with an insurance paid thyroidectomy? ✅if there are isn't if there are options available if there is an option available to avoid surgery and it gives you an equivalent outcome or maybe even better outcome why wouldn't you choose radiofrequency ablation? ✅with radiofrequency ablation now it's exciting because for thyroid nodules they can be removed without doing surgery ✅before radiofrequency ablation all you had was surgery really and obviously with surgery we talked about the possible risks of surgery and of course probably more concerning sometimes to a lot of people is if you take out half of the thyroid even if you're functioning normally with thyroid your thyroid levels you're having normal thyroid function 25% of those patients will still need thyroid hormone ✅the beauty of radiofrequency ablation is that first of all in most circumstances it's no general anesthesia you can do it in the office much like when you go to your dentist and maybe you're getting a cavity filled you get novocaine or lidocaine to numb up the neck area and then under guidance with an ultrasound you take a needle ✅the beauty of that is that the overwhelming majority of times radiofrequency ablation does not change your thyroid function so think about it we're talking about an invasive procedure surgery general anesthesia complication risk ✅ they have a thyroid problem goiter or a nodule that can be treated by radiofrequency ablation that they seriously consider radiofrequency ablation in preserving the thyroid as a treatment option versus a surgery or a thyroidectomy ✅radiofrequency ablation is very effective and more effective than surgery in fact in ablating and controlling papillary micro-cancer without any real complications ✅radiofrequency ablation seems to be a little more focused and maybe a little bit more able to control that destructive process in that area so you can protect those important structures ✅About Dr. Ralph Tufano Dr. Ralph P.

    16:49

    🔹 Roberto Valcavi 🔹 MD, FACE, ECNU Reggio Emilia, Italy RFA for benign nodules, for cystic nodules, for hyper functioning nodules, benign nodules, and now for malignant micro-papillary tumors. During this episode the following topics are discussed: The six steps that go into the RFA STEP 1: setup of the patient. The setup of the patient is in an operatory room -- the safety of a operatory room is by far greater than the setting of an ambulatory room so STEP 2: prepare for anesthesia. STEP 3: electrode needle insertion; it is done at the point exactly at the point transistorically... Step 4: preparation in regard to the laryngeal nerve…. the laryngeal nerve is the most delicate point. The laryngeal nerve may be cooled. Step 5: extraction; simply take out the needle and at the same time it must. Use compression; avoids bleeding both internal and external Step 6: Final check. ✅ About Roberto Valcavi 20 years and 1800+ RFA procedures done; laser since 2000 and radiofrequency ablation starting in 2010. ✅ www.rfamd.com/roberto-valcavi/ ✅ABOUT RFA MD A guide for locating doctors of radiofrequency ablation.

    Thyroid Cancer Patients and Quality of Life Issues with Dr. Grogan and Dr. Aschebrook

    46:42

    University of Chicago Medicine researchers Briseis Aschebrook-Kilfoy, PhD, assistant research professor in epidemiology, and Raymon Grogan, MD, assistant professor of surgery lead the North American Thyroid Cancer Survivorship Study (NATCSS). For their most recent research, Aschebrook-Kilfoy and Grogan recruited 1,174 thyroid cancer survivors – 89.9 percent female with an average age of 48 After treatment, thyroid cancer survivors face a lifetime of cancer surveillance and an anxiety-inducing high rate of recurrence, which could contribute to their findings. "The goal of this study is to turn it into a long-term, longitudinal cohort," said Grogan, who hopes to develop a tool that physicians can use to assess the psychological wellbeing of thyroid cancer survivors. "But, there was no way to do that with thyroid cancer because no one had ever studied quality of life or psychology of thyroid cancer before.” In this episode, we will explore: The spiritual, social, psychological, and physical impacts of thyroid cancer.  Some of the sometimes over-looked physical impacts include dry mouth, voice problems, dry eyes, dental problems, fatigue, dry skin,  and hypoglycemia.   What happens to vocal cords after surgery?  Even when not paralyzed, quality of voice is effected.  Often times, family members don't take treatment seriously.  Society, healthcare professionals, and the media have minimized thyroid cancer, and in return has made patients feel minimized. Anxiety about reoccurrence, RAI treatment, and self-concept, influence quality of life for thyroid cancer patients. A 2011 study by Aschebrook-Kilfoy and Grogan found that thyroid cancer, which is most common in women, will double in incidence by 2019.

    Molecular Profiling and Unnecessary Thyroid Surgeries with Jennifer Kuo from Columbia University

    35:37

    One-third of all thyroid nodule fine needle aspirations come back indeterminate. When surgery is performed on these cases, pathology of the thyroid reveals that many times the nodule is benign.  Through molecular profiling, patients with indeterminate thyroid nodules, can now avoid unnecessary surgery and get more accurate pathology results from the fine needle aspiration. Are you a patient and your doctor has said your thyroid nodule is indeterminate and is recommending surgery as an option?  The key is, to confirm that molecular profiling was performed.    Jennifer Kuo, MD is Director of the Thyroid Biopsy Program, Director of the Endocrine Surgery Research Program, and Instructor in Surgery, at the Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Kuo received her medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University and completed surgical training at the University of California, Davis Medical Center, in Sacramento.  Her new position follows completion of her clinical fellowship in the Department of Surgery, Division of Endocrine Surgery. Dr. Kuo has clinical expertise in minimally invasive endocrine surgery and fine-needle thyroid biopsy and is dedicated to the advancement of the field of endocrine surgery.

    Combination Therapy of T4 and T3: Combat Hypothyroidism, Weight Gain, and Fatigue with Dr. Antonio Bianco from Rush University

    3:14

    Combination Therapy of T4 and T3 as a way to combat Hypothyroidism Thyroidectomy often leads to hypothyroidism-like symptoms.  This includes brain fog, sluggishness, weight gain, unmotivated, and water accumulation.  Dr. Bianco’s research has revealed the connection between thyroidectomy, hypothyroidism symptoms, and T4 only therapy.  Although T4 only therapy works for the majority, others report serious symptoms.  Listen to this segment to hear greater detail in regard to the following topics: Combination therapy of adding T3 to T4 85% of patients on Synthroid feel fine. Nearly 5% of the U.S. population takes T4, as revealed by the NHANE survey Residual symptoms of thyroidectomy include depression, difficulty losing weight, poor motivation, sluggishness, and lack of motivation.  For some, there is no remedy to these symptoms.  The importance of physical activity and its benefit in treating depression If we normalize T3 does it get rid of hypothyroid symptoms? Overlap between menopause and hypothyroidism symptoms Dr. Antonio Bianco, Rush University Medical Center as professor of medicine, senior vice chair in the Department of Internal Medicine and division chief of endocrinology at Rush University Medical Center.  He has more than 30 years of experience in thyroid research. Bianco’s research interests have been in the cellular and molecular physiology of the enzymes that control thyroid hormone action in which he contributed more than 200 papers, book chapters and review articles, and lectured extensively both nationally and internationally. Recently, he has focused on the aspects of the deiodination pathway that interfere with treatment of hypothyroid patients, a disease that affects more than 10 million Americans.
