Cryoablation, also called cryosurgery, cryotherapy, or targeted cryoablation therapy, refers to the application of extreme cold to destroy diseased tissue, including cancer cells.
Since the 1960s, cryotherapy has been used to destroy skin tumors, precancerous skin moles, nodules, skin tags or unsightly freckles. It also has been used to destroy retinoblastomas, a childhood cancer of the retina. With the improvement of imaging techniques and the development of devices to better control extreme temperatures, CiC physicians have treated Renal Cancers, Liver Cancers, and Bone Cancers with great success.
