In my own practice, I was initially very reluctant to embark on salvage cryosurgery
because of the risk of significant complications.
This elevated efficacy results from enhancing the effect of cryosurgery
Ragi, Srivastava and Centurion work closely with each of their patients, educating them on all of their treatment and surgical options, including cryosurgery
is distinguished from cryopreservation according to the details of the freezing process.
Also, unlike chemotherapy or surgery which batters your body so much you can only have it once, you can have cryosurgery

requires the use of liquid nitrogen, nitrous oxide, or carbon dioxide.
But Catalona says cryosurgery
often fails to remove all of the cancer.
The other five patients achieved long-term pain relief but have died from disease progression outside of the cryosurgery
They include cold-knife excision, cryosurgery
, marsupialization, laser excision, and intralesional injection of OK-432.
, a cancer treatment technique that uses extreme cold to destroy cancer cells, was approved by Medicare in 1999 as a primary treatment and is a viable option for cancer patients who have failed radiation.
Newer treatment approaches such as laser therapy, hyperthermic methods, hyperthermic perfusion therapy, and cryosurgery
are also presented.
More severe abnormalities or early-stage cancer that has not spread usually can be completely cured by destroying the tissue with lasers, electrical treatment, cryosurgery
(which uses cold), or other methods.
The third patient remained pain free until the 11th month post cryosurgery
at which time she developed malignant ascites.
