Clinical Evidence

Commitment to impactful evidence

The science behind evidence-based care

STARmed supports the generation of high-quality clinical evidence through collaborative research initiatives. We work with clinicians, hospitals, and medical societies to uncover the benefits of STARmed technology while maintaining a patient-centric mindset.

STARmed Thyroid RFA Clinical Evidence


STARmed technology is the most used device by Key Opinion Leaders around the world to develop procedure standards for thyroid RFA. More than 94 articles have been published with STARmed technology to prove the efficacy of STARmed Thyroid RFA in terms of volume reduction rate, symptom relief, cosmetic score, and quality of life.
