How soon can I return to work following Cryosurgery?
- As soon as 48 hours in some cases but normally within 4-5 days.
How soon can I run afterwards?
- No sooner than six weeks following cryosurgery treatment.
Is the cryosurgery treatment painful?
- A small percentage of patients experience mild discomfort whilst having local anaesthetic injection. This generally lasts only one to two seconds. Once the local anaesthetic has been administered there is no pain felt during the treatment.
Is the cryosurgery treatment safe?
- We are the leading centre in Europe offering Podiatric cryosurgery for Morton's Neuroma and have performed more treatments than anywhere else outside of North America. To date, up to February 2013, we have performed hundreds of cases with no reported complications or infections.
How long have you been performing Cryosurgery and how many cases have you performed?
- We have been performing cryosurgery for 5 years and have treated over 1000 cases.
Can anyone have cryosurgery treatment?
- Patients with circulation disorders, particularly to the hands and feet require careful assessment and are not always suitable candidates for cryosurgery. Similarly, patients with serious underlying medical conditions are assessed on a case by case basis.
If cryosurgery treatment is not totally successful can it be repeated?
- Yes, such patients will often experience total relief after a second treatment.
If the treatment fails can I still have my neuroma surgically excised?
- Yes. There is no reason why surgery cannot be performed if required.
Do medical insurance companies cover cryosurgery treatment costs?
- Most of the major providers do cover some or all the treatment costs, however insurance policies can vary.
Are you registered with any professional organisations?
- Mr Weaver belongs to the Institute of Podiatrists, the largest Professional body of Podiatrists in private practice in the UK.
How do I ensure my podiatrist is properly qualified to perform the cryosurgery procedure?
- Mr Weaver was the first UK Podiatrist to be trained in the United States in the use of percutaneous cryosurgery. He was trained by the most experienced U.S. main trainer, who has trained approximately 50 % of the Podiatrists who now perform cryosurgery in the United States. On completion of his training he was described by his trainer as being “…one of the most competent and knowledgeable professionals I have ever trained”. Mr Weaver introduced percutaneous cryosurgery to the UK in 2009 and has since gone on to train other professionals including Podiatric surgeons from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. Since 2009 Mr Weaver has performed well over 1000 procedures, more than anyone else in Europe. Mr Weaver has also developed new protocols for the treatment of stump neuromas which are being now being adopted by Podiatrist in the United States. In short Mr Weaver is the most experienced and qualified person to perform cryosurgery in the UK. As such he sees patients from all parts of the UK and the rest of world including patients who have travelled from near and far from countries ranging from United States to China.
