WHY IS CRYOABLATION THERAPY GAINING POPULARITY ALL OVER THE WORLD?

To understand what cryoablation is, a short trip back to middle school biology is needed. We humans are comprised of billions upon billions of miniscule cells. Skin cells, blood cells, muscle cells, brain cells, even your bones, hair, eyelashes, fingernails

WHAT IS CRYOABLATION?

Here’s a high-level explanation on how cryoablation therapy works. A cryoprobe, which is an extremely thin needle, is inserted through skin and muscle to the location of a cancerous tumor.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The reason that the probe is so thin is that it causes minimal damage to any skin or muscle that it passes through, so much so that within hours of treatment, you may not even be able to tell a needle was ever inserted.

BENEFITS & RISKS

The major benefit of cryoablation is that compared to many cancer treatments, including removing tumors by surgery, it is minimally invasive.As well, the patient often only needs a mild sedation, or no sedation of all, as the process works on such a miniscule scale that it is highly unlikely any nerves will register any pain.

Other benefits include that it is often a day-surgery level procedure. Arrive in the morning, have your cryoablation treatment, and you’ll often be good to go in the early afternoon.

As with all medical treatments and procedures, however, there are risks. Cryoablation does involve the use of extremely cold temperatures, and some healthy cells in and around the cancerous tumor may be destroyed as part of the therapy.
