Dr. Harding

Dr. Richard HardingI am Richard Harding, MD, medical director of the Thyroid Nodule Treatment Center (TNTC). I would like to welcome you to our center and hope to make this a very pleasant experience.

Mission Statement:

Preservation of normal thyroid function is paramount even if a patient has large and symptomatic thyroid nodules. Large thyroid nodules cause symptoms from compression of adjacent tissue. A non- surgical alternative to thyroidectomy and radio- iodine ablation is now available for effective treatment of large benign nodules. With RFA, tissue volume reduction and symptom relief are accomplished through pinhole incisions with long term protection of normal thyroid function. Symptomatic patients and patients with visible enlargement are candidates for this innovative therapy.
