Why Save Your Thyroid

“Save Your Thyroid” is not just a slogan, it is our mission, a philosophy and a healthy lifestyle that was created with the purpose of disseminating and promoting the technique and benefits of thyroid thermoablation as a standard innovative procedure useful to avoid and reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries. 

The main purpose of the project is to raise awareness among patients, encouraging the application of thermoablation with the correct indications, safeguarding the thyroid gland to benefit to enjoy its unaltered function, without scarring, without general anesthesia and without the need to have to take thyroid hormone replacement therapy for life!

The use of the latest technologies and techniques developed by Prof. Spiezia allow for increased quality of life, drastically reducing pre- and post-operative complications as well as promoting, virtually, immediate recovery times.

But “Save Your Thyroid” is also an educational program; it is an international school of thyroid ultrasound and echo-intervention supported by and emanating from Italy’s leading scientific society dealing with ultrasound, the SIUMB, and a team of highly experienced specialists coordinated by the school’s Director with 25 years’ experience in the field of thermoablation treatment of thyroid pathologies.

His clinical practice is mainly dedicated to patients with benign and malignant endocrine pathologies, and is particularly skilled in minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic assisted surgery of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands.

Dr Spiezia is one of the pioneers in Europe of thermal ablation of thyroid nodules, his first works on laser thermal ablation were published in Thyroid in 2003 and Radiology in 2004 after which he began to publish his experience on RFA since 2007. He is currently invited as a KOL in many international congresses and as a proctor to start clinical trials of thermal ablation, on both therapies, in hospitals in Europe, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. In his hospital patients are admitted for surgery, but also for percutaneous treatments, all procedures being available on an outpatient basis such as RFA, laser ablation or PEI.

Dr. Spiezia is an active member of the Tirnet network for the molecular test on cytological sample determining the value of this test to spread the concept of tailor-made surgery in thyroid cancer.
