The use of cryosurgical procedures in a wide variety of medical areas is no longer an experimental or exotic process. Cryosurgery has been applied successfully in such areas as neurosurgery (treatment of Parkinson’s disease), ophthalmology (cataract removal), otology (treatment of Miniere’s disease), dermatology (treatment of Verrucae), gynecology, urology, and orthopedic surgery [1].
