HOWELL, NJ-Drs. Richard Lesser and Affan Akhtar, Howell podiatrists, are happy to announce that their practice is now offering cryosurgery to help treat their patients. Cryosurgery, the use of extreme cold to treat painful conditions, can be a very effective treatment for plantar fasciitis and Morton's Neuroma.
"I am very excited to be able to offer this service to our patients. Cryosurgery has tremendous benefits and will be a great addition to our practice. I look forward to treating our patients with this new service," said Dr. Lesser, podiatrist in the Jackson, NJ area.
Cryosurgery can be performed within 15 minutes in a single appointment using a local anesthetic. The tissue is frozen for 3 minutes then thawed. After repeating, the procedure will be complete. There will generally be very little to no bleeding and no sutures will be needed, as the puncture site is very small. A topical antibiotic is then applied and patients are advised to have a reduced level of activity for 24 to 48 hours.

The website also offers a patient education section that is designed to increase patients knowledge about podiatric topics and help educate them on how to take care of their feet. The more knowledge a patient has, the more likely they are to maintain healthy feet and seek treatment when necessary. For more information, patients can visit the website or call (732) 370-1100.
