Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery is the treatment of certain medical disorders with the use of sub-zero temperature liquid nitrogen cooled probes. Minor orthopedic ailments such as "splints" and "curds" are commonly treated. Cryosurgery is also used for the treatment of locally invasive tumors such as sarcoids, melanomas and squamous cell tumors to name a few.
