Foot Conditions Treated by Cryosurgery

1)    Plantar Fasciitis
2)    Morton’s Neuroma
3)    Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
4)    Insertional Achilles Tendinitis
5)    Inflamed nerves on top of the foot.
6)    Plantar Fibroma
7)    Stump Neuroma

Like any procedure, complications can happen.  The main one for cryosurgery is a possibility of an infection.  However, this is true for any surgery.  The chance for an infection is small, since the incision is small.  

 

When conservative treatment fails, most doctors only can offer an invasive surgical option.  It is always best to try the most conservative approach as possible, since once you cut, there is no turning back.
