Cryosurgery is the specialized field of using extremely low temperatures to destroy pathological tissues. The application of cryo-technology in podiatry has been increasing since it first became approved by the FDA in late 2003. Cryosurgery can be used as a treatment for plantar fasciitis and other common foot conditions including, infracalcaneal bursitis, neuromas, neuritis, and plantar fibromas.
So how does cryosurgery work? Cryoanalgesia or cryoablation as it is also called is a minimally invasive procedure that uses extremely cold temperatures to selectively destroy nerve endings.
