What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy, also known as cryoablation, is a treatment that utilizes extreme cold through liquid nitrogen or argon gas to freeze and eliminate abnormal tissue. We typically recommend cryoablation when patients are experiencing health concerns caused by this abnormal tissue. This could include warts and skin tags, certain cancers like bone, cervical, and liver cancer, precancerous skin conditions, and more. Cryotherapy can treat tissues both on the skin and inside the body and does not require open surgery.
There are various types of cryotherapy, but all of them employ extremely cold temperatures, typically much colder than freezing point, to alleviate pain and promote general wellness. Talk to a provider at Schneck to see if cryotherapy could be right for you. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have and determine the best course of action to support your overall well-being.
