As our knowledge about thyroid symptoms evolves and breakthrough medical technologies are introduced, the future of thyroid treatment is beginning to change. With the introduction of minimally invasive methods such as the STARmed RFA system to treat benign, symptomatic thyroid nodules, it’s clear that the patient experience is continually improving.
We’d like to introduce you to Dr. Auh Whan Park, a true trailblazer in the realm of thyroid ablation. He was one of the first doctors in the USA to perform Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) on benign thyroid nodules and continues to be an advocate for this novel procedure. As an expert in the field, Dr. Auh Whan Park has spent much of his career as a champion for researching thermal/chemical ablation of a thyroid nodule. He continues to work with newer generations of medical students as a mentor and teacher in this subject area.
Dr. Auh Whan Park received his medical degree and completed a radiology residency and interventional radiology fellowship training at Kyungpook National University/Hospital in South Korea. He then went on to complete additional vascular and interventional radiology fellowship training University of Michigan Medical Center in 2005-2006. Dr. Auh Whan Park continued to work at the University of Michigan Medical Center for over a decade before joining the University of Virginia interventional radiology group in 2009. He currently serves as an associate professor in the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia.
Dedicated to furthering knowledge about thyroid ablation
Not only is Dr. Auh Whan Park a pioneer in this field, but he continues to deepen his understanding by providing research and resources around thyroid RFA. His dedication to continuous learning is one of the many ways his passion for this field is evident. He is also willing to share his knowledge and further contribute to the understanding of minimally invasive procedures for thyroid ablation.
Dr. Auh Whan Park is the author of Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation, a dedicated resource to help other doctors incorporate thyroid RFA in their practice by highlighting advances and research in the field, particularly around safety and efficacy. You can also find further information, such as educational videos and lectures around thyroid RFA, on his website, which you can access here.
