the E.T.C. Clinic
The Endocrine & Thyroid Clinic of Reggio Emilia is a center specialized in particular in the diagnosis and eco-guided therapies of the endocrine neck

The Clinic E.T.C.

The Endocrine & Thyroid Clinic (E.T.C.), directed by Doctor Roberto Valcavi, was born in 2021 with the aim of being a reference center for Endocrine patients and in particular for patients with thyroid, parathyroid and lymph node pathologies.

It is possible to carry out specialist endocrinological medical consultations, ultrasound scans of the endocrine glands and in particular of the endocrine neck, biopsies for cytological examination with fine needle (Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy) or biopsies with cutting needle for histological examination (Core Needle Biopsy).

These are preliminary activities to the most innovative activities: ultrasound-guided ablation operations with radiofrequency through which cold and hot, benign and, with selective indications, malignant thyroid nodules can be selectively destroyed, avoiding open surgery and post-operative hospitalization. Ultrasound-guided minimally invasive surgery saves the thyroid.

A state-of-the-art facility

Our instruments are of the latest generation and perfect for every patient. Inside you will find a single surgical workspace that combines imaging equipment with a multifunctional surgical table. The operating room is the most valuable room in the clinic and requires high-value equipment, personnel and logistics and, of course, provides a high-value service to patients. In terms of both money and well-being, a minute in the operating room is very valuable. The operating room is completed by a recovery room with two mobile beds separated by a privacy curtain, with its own dressing room and a bathroom for the disabled. Note that in the Clinic E.T.C. only disposable disposable material is used, which reduces the risk of bacterial or viral contamination to zero.
