Cryoablation for the Treatment of Neurological Conditions

Cryoablation is a process used to modulate nerve function by applying focused cold in a controlled fashion to a specific nerve. A typical procedure uses probes with sensors placed into or near a nerve under ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance. When in place, the freezing unit will cool the tip of the probe, which then cools down the surrounding tissues.

This effectively “turns off” the nerve being treated such that it will no longer send pain signals. Dr. Williams can perform this procedure in his office over the course of minutes, using local anesthetic to numb the area prior to probe insertion. He is has successfully applied cryoablation to specific sensory nerves to treat pain in a number of areas, providing relief of acute, persistent and chronic pain. Examples include:

Knee pain from arthritis
Jumper’s Knee Pain
Occipital Neuralgia/Headache
Foot pain from Morton’s Neuroma
Extremity pain
Painful Surgical Scars
Pre-Operatively to reduce post-op pain, reduce medication, and speed rehab/recovery
