STOP PAIN COLD
Iovera® is an approved procedure for the treatment of acute and chronic pain that uses ‘Cryoneurolysis‘ to target sensory nerves and temporarily interrupt pain signals leading to an immediate relief of discomfort. Cryoneurolysis is the directed application under ultrasound guidance of a thermal neurolytic agent: In effect, we use ultrasound to find the pain-transmitting nerve and guide the device to deliver a precise temperature using nitrous oxide around those components of the nerve and interrupt that signal. Iovera® is approved for the treatment of all peripheral nerves. It is most commonly used, very successfully, in the treatment of knee pain.
The treatment of knee pain can be used before your surgery to provide improved postoperative pain control, in the treatment of chronic knee pain due to injuries or arthritis, or even in patients having knee pain who have already undergone total knee replacements. Dr. Rhoades is certified in the use of Iovera® and was one of the first physicians to utilize this device in the treatment of pain.
