Like laser surgery, cryosurgery can be used with great control to destroy specific nerve endings. It utilizes extreme cold- as low as -94 degrees- produced by pressurized nitrous oxide. Most problems for which cryosurgery is recommended involve extreme pain. Among these are infracalcaneal bursitis, plantar fasciitis, plantar fibromas, and neuromas.
Before cryosurgery is performed, it will be essential to determine the exact areas where the patient feels the most intense pain. Once those designated areas have been identified, a trained podiatrist will make a small incision through which the cryotube will be inserted. The procedure is considered minimally invasive and is often completed in roughly a half an hour. Best of all, the majority of patients who undergo the procedure experience significant and lasting pain relief.
