Patients with noncancerous thyroid nodules may have a new treatment option as Mount Sinai West introduced a radiofrequency ablation procedure in August. “I first saw the procedure or details on the procedure being presented at the American Thyroid Association meeting over the past few years. It piqued my interest because the results that were obtained out of Korea and Europe were impressive,” said Catherine Sinclair, MD, associate professor of otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and director of head and neck surgery at Mount Sinai West. According to Dr. Sinclair, “To add it to a disease where management has generally been surgical, to have a nonsurgical option struck me as something that patients would really be excited about.”
