After struggling through the 2014 season, Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Braun is set to have Cryosurgery on his thumb. In the 2013 season, Braun suffered an injury that affected a nerve in his thumb that has caused his performance to suffer and landed him on the disabled list for the first time in his career. After weighing the risks of surgery to his hand, doctors chose Cryosurgery as the best choice. It is minimally invasive and yields little to no side effects. In addition, his down time will not be long at all.
This will be the first time the Crysurgery procedure is done on a baseball player. However, Cryosurgery has been performed on the foot and ankle for years.
