IMMEDIATE AND LONG-LASTING PAIN RELIEF

iovera° harnesses the power of cold to immediately reduce pain. Cryoanalgesia using the patented iovera° system delivers a localized nerve block.

  • FDA cleared to block pain
  • Provides immediate, long-lasting relief of acute (postsurgical) and chronic pain
  • The iovera° treatment is localized and does not inject any drugs into the body

The iovera° treatment can be performed prior to knee surgery to help reduce your pain after surgery or to treat chronic pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee.

IndicationThe iovera° system is used to destroy tissue during surgical procedures by applying freezing cold. It can also be used to produce lesions in peripheral nervous tissue by the application of cold to the selected site for the blocking of pain. It is also indicated for the relief of pain and symptoms associated with osteoarthritis of the knee for up to 90 days. The iovera° system is not indicated for treatment of central nervous system tissue.
