Colorado health system 1st in region to offer cryoanalgesia knee pain relief


Tomas Pevny, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Glenwood Springs, Colo.-based Valley View, has become the first in the region to offer Iovera, an FDA-approved nonsurgical, nonopioid knee pain treatment, according to a July 20 press release sent to Becker's. 

Iovera is a cryoanalgesia technology that allows healthcare providers to block pain for immediate and long-term relief by delivering precise cold therapy to a targeted nerve. 

It has shown long-term effectiveness in the treatment of knee pain, stopping nerves from sending pain signals for up to 90 days. 

It is administered with a nonsurgical handheld device and does not cause any damage to the surrounding knee tissue.
