Cryosurgery in podiatric practice is a technique that utilizes extreme cold to destroy skin lesions on the foot, such as plantar warts and granulation tissue. With recent advancements in application techniques and the development of cryosurgical devices, such as the CryoIQ device, cryotherapy has become widely used and the preferred method in podiatry due to its safety, efficacy, low cost and aesthetic outcomes.
One of the major benefits of cryosurgery in podiatry is that it is minimally invasive, meaning that no incisions or stitches are needed, thus making it a suitable treatment option for patients who are not good candidates for invasive procedures due to medical condition, age, or other factors.
Some of the key benefits of incorporating CryoIQ in podiatry includes, but are not limited to:
- Quick and efficient: The freezing procedure is quick and effective and only takes a few minutes to perform.
- Pain free: The procedure is typically pain free and in most cases no anesthesia is needed.
- Versatility: Our CryoIQ devices can be used with fixed applicators for liquid spray freezing or contact freezing, or a wide range of interchangeable applicators to cater to different treatment options.
- Fever complications: Since cryosurgery is a non-invasive procedure and no incisions or stitches are needed, this makes it a suitable treatment option for patients who are not good candidates for invasive procedures due to medical conditions, age or other factors.
- Cost-effective: Cryosurgery with CryoIQ is known to be cost-effective due to optional use of anesthesia and CryoIQ’s affordable cost per treatment, as well as the low investment cost for the CryoIQ devices.
Thanks to its versatility CryoIQ is perfectly fitted for treatment of a board range of skin conditions, including verrucae, plantar warts, granulation tissue, nevi, molluscum contagiosum, dermatofibromas, seborrheic keratosis, actinic keratosis, and more.
