Patients of Neuralgia, a condition where nerves are damaged by surgery, can get relief from an invasive interventional radiology treatment called cryoneurolysis.
A study done by William Moore, MD, a thoracic interventional radiologist at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, completed more than 200 cryoneurolysis procedures to halt nerve pain. The cryoneurolysis procedure places a tiny ball of ice on the damaged nerve.
Cryoneurolysis is an innovative procedure that uses a small probe that’s cooled minus 50 to minus 70 degrees Celsius, and creates a freezer burn along the outer layer of the nerve.
