Thyroid Cancer & Thyroid Diseases - Information:
Welcome to the American Thyroid Cancer clinic - The Website with information about Thyroid Tests, Thyroid Cysts, Thyroid Nodules, Thyroidectomy, Thyroid Diseases, Papillary Cancer, Follicular Cancer, Low Calcium, Nerve Monitoring, Vocal Cords, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Graves' Disease, with photographs of surgery and newsletters.
After seeing thousands of patients from around the world and many of those who have come to us through our thyroid cancer Internet site, we have discovered that probably the most common difficulty that patients with thyroid tumors seem to have is that their physician has not taken the time to sit down and explain the surgical treatment plan to them in detail. This is probably a result of a health care system that has forced doctors to cram large volumes of patients into one day's work. It is our opinion that this is neither in the doctor's or patient's best interest. The feedback that we have received from our patients is that reading our website is like sitting across from a concerned physician. Patients come away with all the information they need to feel far more comfortable about their thyroid questions. After reading this site, if you have additional questions, feel free to call and speak to the doctor personally. We always return all sincere and appropriate calls.
Probably the second most common observation we have made is that patients arrive at our clinic with thousands of dollars worth of testing that was completely unnecessary. Indeed, and this is especially true in large institutions, once a patient is found to have a "thyroid problem" they are immediately herded to a clinic that performs a battery of routine testing without regard for the individual patient's needs. This may be convenient for the institution, but it can be costly, invasive, painful, and often times unnecessary.
Our thyroid cancer clinic has thrived for more than sixty-three years as an extension of a medical center practice that began in 1949. The reason for this success is that each patient's diagnostic and treatment plan is carefully constructed to fit individual needs.
An unusually large percentage of our patients are doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals who are usually quite knowledgeable and skilled in the process of choosing their physician.
Dr. Rosendahl is now practicing in Austin, the capital of Texas, having established The Thyroid Surgery Center of Texas, P.A., where he will continue to see selected patients. You may request an appointment by calling the Clinic directly at 512-608-9595.
In the past few years many thyroid patients have made an appointment to come see us after visiting our thyroid web site. We have performed thyroid surgery on a large number of those patients. But we have also received an overwhelming number of calls from folks who are already in the middle of their thyroid treatment plan with their doctor, and they still call to just sort of "talk it over" with someone else. This is not fair to either the patient or his/her physician, and it accomplishes nothing. We, therefore, only accept calls from patients who have not yet been treated.
