Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Jun 13, 2018 - “New Frontiers” has created a new medical TV series debuting Miami’s Fine Needle Aspiration Clinic directed under the compassionate and highly educated guidance of pathologist, Dr. Idalia Santaella. The clinic removes a tremendous source of anxiety from patients facing a potential cancer diagnosis.
Until recently, patients discovering a lump in their head and neck area, breast or other soft tissues required the lengthy process of having a sample removed and sent elsewhere for biopsy to determine the nature of the cells forming beneath the skin. This process often takes a week or more; patients awaiting diagnosis, in the meantime, lose sleep, worry throughout the workday and potentially sit alone with the emotions in an effort to delay breaking the news to friends and family.
The innovation of the Fine Needle Aspiration Clinic’s specialized pathology laboratory seeks to eliminate not only the prolonged hardship of waiting for potentially life-altering results but also lost time which could be used for immediate treatment for cases in which time is a major player in successful recovery rates. Rather than waiting for weeks to find out if the masses are malignant or benign, patients under evaluation will learn whatever necessary steps they must undertake the same day as the aspiration procedure.
I had a lesion on my thyroid, which had been worrying me for months, but I was too scared to see a doctor! I contacted Dr. Santaella after I researched her on this site. I saw all of the amazing comments about her and thought I should give her a try. Wow, I definitely got proof that these comments were completely true! Dr. Santaella has been the best physician I have ever gone to!
Patients at the Fine Needle Aspiration Clinic receive results from a board-certified pathologist employing a safe, proven and nearly painless technique. Fine needle aspiration is significantly less invasive and less costly than traditional procedures for removing test samples. A very thin needle aspirates fluid from the lump which is then evaluated on site under a microscope. Patients are able to return to work on the same day as the procedure.
The clinic was founded by Dr. Robert Aportela and Idalia Santaella and has evaluated over 50,000 patients using fine needle aspiration. As the medical director of the Fine Needle Aspiration Clinic, Dr. Santaella is a board-certified pathologist and cytopathologist with extensive experience performing and interpreting fine needle aspirations (FNA). Additionally, Dr. Santaella is certified in Ultrasound-Guided FNA with which she has performed and/or interpreted nearly 2,000 cases per year. She completed her pathology and cytopathology education at the Medical College of Virginia as well as further training at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden where the FNA technique was pioneered.
Dr. Idalia Santaella heads the Fine Needle Aspiration Clinic at 135 San Lorenzo Avenue, Suite 100, Coral Gables, Florida. To learn more about Dr. Santaella’s work or to book a consultation, visit http://www.fineneedleaspirationclinic.com/ or call (305) 448-7213.
