WHAT IS iovera°?
The iovera° treatment uses the body’s natural response to cold to treat nerves and immediately reduce pain—without the use of drugs. Treated nerves are stopped from sending pain signals for a period of time, followed by a restoration of function.

HOW IT WORKS
iovera° harnesses the power of cold to immediately reduce pain. Cryoanalgesia
(targeted cold therapy) using the patented iovera° system delivers a localized nerve block.
- FDA-cleared to block pain
- Provides immediate, long-lasting relief of acute (postsurgical) and chronic pain
- The iovera° treatment is localized and does not inject any drugs into the body

Cold has been used to relieve pain since the days of Hippocrates in ancient Greece. Modern cold therapy, or cryotherapy, has been around since the 1950s and is a trusted technology for treating pain.
The iovera° treatment can be used to treat chronic pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee. A clinical study showed that most
iovera° patients experienced pain relief that lasted up to 90 days.2 The results of this study show that iovera° patients had:
