The First Thyroid RFA Symposium in Romania: A Groundbreaking Event

The First Thyroid RFA Symposium in Romania

Date 30 March 2023

Location: Iasi, Romania

The city of Iasi, Romania, will host a groundbreaking event in the field of thyroid treatments from March 30th to April 2nd, 2023. The First Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Symposium will take place as part of the Simpozion SNRIR, a prestigious medical event focusing on interventional radiology and minimally invasive treatments. The symposium can be found on the official event website: https://simpozion-snrir.ro/en/

Thyroid RFA has become an increasingly popular and effective treatment for benign thyroid nodules and recurrent thyroid cancers, offering a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery. This technique uses radiofrequency energy to generate heat and destroy targeted tissue, resulting in a significant reduction in the size of the treated nodules.

The symposium will be held on March 30th and will feature an impressive lineup of international experts in the field of thyroid RFA, including:

  1. Dr. Roberto Valcavi, Interventional Endocrinologist from Reggio Emilia, Italy
  2. Dr. Giovanni Turtulici, Interventional Radiologist from Genoa, Italy
  3. Dr. Mattia Squarcia, Interventional Radiologist from Barcelona, Spain
  4. Dr. Mihai Creteanu, Interventional Radiologist from Iasi, Romania
  5. Dr. Endocrine Surgeon, Cassandre Benay from Montreal, Canada

This marks the first time a thyroid RFA symposium will be held in Romania, making it a significant milestone in the country’s medical history. The event aims to provide a platform for sharing knowledge, expertise, and recent advancements in thyroid RFA treatments, ultimately leading to improved patient care.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field and be part of this groundbreaking event. Mark your calendars for March 30th, 2023, and join the First Thyroid RFA Symposium in Iasi, Romania.
