Patient Experience with iovera˚ at Oklahoma Surgical Hospital

Watch Clint, Pat and Bobby, real patients of Oklahoma Surgical and Advanced Orthopedics of Oklahoma, discuss their experiences with iovera˚ first-hand.

Clint

Clint has spent years with chronic knee pain and finally had to schedule a knee replacement surgery. His doctor recommended iovera˚ beforehand to help with his postsurgical recovery. See Clint’s experience as he talks about his introduction to iovera˚, goes through his scheduled in-office iovera˚ treatment, and sees the effects of that treatment.

Pat and Bobby

Pat and Bobby had each experienced a knee replacement surgery without iovera˚ several years ago, and then had a recent second knee replacement surgery accompanied by iovera˚ treatment. Each describe their personal experiences between the two surgeries.

Rick

"A year ago I started having arthritic pains in my knees, and it limited my walking ability severely. . . . I've had surgery on my left knee, and in a week I'm having a total knee replacement on my right knee. . . . When I first heard about iovera° it was a new idea to me . . . [Because of Dr Barrett's] description of it and how it's used, and my own internet research, I felt it would be advantageous. . . . I'm looking forward to a complete recovery."

Molly

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.

Important Safety InformationThe iovera° system should not be used in people with the following conditions:

  • Blood that thickens when patient is exposed to cold (cryoglobulinemia), blood appearing in the urine when patient is exposed to the cold (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), skin rash that appears when patient is exposed to the cold (cold urticaria), narrowing of the blood vessels in the hands and feet when patient is exposed to the cold (Raynaud’s disease), and open and/or infected wounds at or near the treatment site

Patients being treated with the iovera° system (a needle-based therapy) may experience certain reactions, including, but not limited to:

  • Bruising, swelling, inflammation and/or redness, local pain and/or tenderness, and altered feeling at the site of application

Proper use of the device as described in the User Guide can help reduce or prevent the following reactions:

  • In the area(s) where you were treated: damage to the skin from being exposed to cold or heat, darkening or lightening of the skin, and dimples in the skin
  • Outside the area(s) where you were treated: muscles may not work or move normally
