Ultrasound-guided Fine Needle Aspiration
Dr. Rosenthal is credentialed by the American College of Surgeons for Ultrasound of the Head and Neck and is highly skilled in performing these biopsies, creating a relaxed, comfortable environment for his patients.
Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) can be performed on:
- Thyroid Nodules
- Salivary Gland (Parotid and Submandibular) Nodules
- Lymph Nodes
- Any unknown neck mass
Dr. Rosenthal uses local anesthesia and his bedside manner to make the patient more comfortable while performing these needle biopsies. Most patients rate the experience ~3 out of 10 (ten being the worst).
Ultrasound examination of the neck has also enabled Dr.Rosenthal to perform more accurate Minimally Invasive Parathyroid Surgery and surveil his Thyroid Cancer patients with greater detail.
