Center for Excellence:

The Right Choice

The Thyroid and RFA Center for Excellence in Houston offers the latest advances in non-surgical treatment of endocrinology conditions related to the thyroid, including radiofrequency ablation (RFA), ultrasounds and fine-needle aspiration biopsies – all in one place.

Cristina Boccalandro, M.D., M.P.H., leads the Center and its team, and has dedicated her entire career to endocrinology with a special concentration in thyroid conditions. Not surprising, she is the first endocrinologist in the greater Houston area to perform this innovative technique to treat thyroid nodules. She has a long history of treating not only individual patients but their extended family members, as well, and has cared for generations of families who have received a thyroid diagnosis and seek her expertise and guidance.

 

Our practice is international and we routinely welcome patients from all over the world. Located in the Texas Medical Center, our patients enjoy all its amenities at their disposal. It offers the finest accommodations, dining and entertainment options while you are in Houston.
