Is Cryosurgery Painful?

Cryosurgery is nearly painless!There are many advantages to Cryosurgery on foot pain. First, it is nearly painless, the doctor will numb the area with a local anesthetic before the tiny incision is made. The procedure is so quick and easy patients are able to walk on their feet the day is is performed. Second, it provides long lasting pain relief.

Cryosurgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is done in the office to help relive patients of the pain they are experiencing. It is very helpful in neuromas, plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, and especially heel pain. The procedure is done under local anesthesia while the doctor cuts a tiny incision in the area. The freezing from the Crosurgery provides a much deeper pain relief than a simple cooling. This type of procedure has been used for centuries because of its great results. The vasoconstriction of blood vessels reduces inflammation, just as holding ice to a painful area would.  The cryosurgery offers long lasting relief.
