Cryosurgery

When you need us:Cryosurgery with Dr. Lisa Nesson

A skin lesion or mass has appeared on your horse’s skin

Cryosurgery involves using liquid nitrogen at a temperature of approximately -330°F to freeze problematic tissue while minimizing damage to healthy tissue, particularly in ocular and genital regions. If your horse has unwanted or challenging masses, like sarcoids or other tumors, cryosurgery might be a good solution.

What we do:

We can eliminate damaged tissue on your horse using liquid nitrogen

After assessing the problem and coming up with an appropriate treatment plan, we will use a device containing liquid nitrogen to pinpoint and destroy the problem tissue. Some conditions require several treatments to achieve a successful outcome. After the area is treated, white hair may grow in the treated area, a side effect of being subjected to extreme cold.
