Cryosurgery

 

At AVAH, we are always working to add advanced treatment techniques that benefit our patients. Cryosurgery uses a precise, super cold (minus 127 degrees farenheit) jet of liquid nitrogen to freeze tissue, eliminating the need for incisions and stitches. "Cryo" is ideal for smaller growths, oral tumors, eyelid procedures, and masses where closing a traditional surgery would be difficult (lower legs and toes). Most procedures require only local anesthesia, making it a safer alternative for older or at risk patients.

 

Cryosurgery is less invasive, less stressful, produces less discomfort, carries no anesthesia risk and is less expensive.

 

Adding cryosurgery to our treatment options is good for our patients and their people.
