RFA/ Laser Ablation
Dr. Andrade is not only a pioneer but one of a handful of Physicians in the United States who specializes in these ground-breaking treatments for patients with benign thyroid nodules. Both are non-surgical, safe, and less costly alternatives to surgery that leave no scars and let patients get on with their day very quickly.
We are the only medical center in the country to offer both, Thyroid Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) and Percutaneous Laser Ablation (PLA).
Before each procedure, Dr. Andrade will obtain 2 Fine Needle Aspirations of the Thyroid Nodule (FNA) to verify it’s benign. He performs these outpatient treatments at the Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Pituitary Center for Miami.
