    • Medicina

🔹 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 Philip James
He is the host of the popular podcast: Doctor Thyroid
www.docthyroid.com
🔹
In 2013, his laryngeal nerve was severed, shoulder nerve damaged, parathyroids ruined, and residual cancer left behind — all for a 1 cm thyroid nodule.
Later, a vocal cord implant was inserted to help him speak.
🔹
All the above, the result of a bad thyroid surgery that dampened his quality of life — and left him wondering, what exactly happened — during what should be a low-risk surgery?
🔹
His attempts to follow up with UCLA and the UCLA surgeon were ignored.
He then turned to other doctors for answers — this was the beginning of the podcast:
"Doctor Thyroid with Philip James"
🔹
100+ episodes later, the Doctor Thyroid podcast is popular amongst patients; allowing them to access information from top doctors, without being limited by geography or economics.
🔹
The word he uses to describe his work as patient advocate is, ‘tonglen’. Or, using his pain and hardship to help others.
🔹
When not producing podcast episodes or co-hosting live Q&As for patients with top doctors, he leads the creative team at Doctor Marketing and Philip James Media — a marketing agency dedicated to digital communications serving the sectors of healthcare, payments, and Greentech.
🔹
The Doctor Thyroid podcast is available in Spanish and English - and listened to in over 30 countries:
