Tumor Information

Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery is a technique in which liquid nitrogen is used to kill tumor cells. It is preceded by "curettage" in which the tumor is manually removed with surgical instruments and a high-speed drill. It is especially effective in preventing recurrence of benign but "aggressive" bone tumors, such as giant cell tumors and aneurysmal bone cysts.

We have nearly 20 years of experience in the use of this technique and have carefully refined its application to maximize its effectiveness while preventing complications.
