Cryotherapy is an alternative to surgery or radiation therapy for prostate cancer. Cryotherapy freezes prostate tissue and kills prostate cancer. The method has been found to effectively control cancer in men with early-stage prostate cancer. However, further research is required to assess the long-term results of the procedure. Treatment was initially proposed as a “surgical” alternative to radiation without the need for prostate removal.

Cryotherapy is performed by inserting several thin metal rods from the perineum (between the testicle bag and the anus) into the prostate. An ultrasound probe in the rectum will guide your doctor when placing the bars. After the ends of the rods are inserted, these bars are emitted by liquid nitrogen or argon gas which will freeze the surrounding tissues. This causes cancer cells to break and die. A catheter is inserted into the urethra to prevent the urethra from freezing together with the prostate and filled with a heating solution.

The procedure is performed in our hospital. You can get general anesthesia, which means that you may be unconscious during the procedure. Our doctor may only numb the surgical site (local anesthesia). The procedure takes 2 to 3 hours and causes very little blood loss. The recovery process takes 2 to 4 weeks after the procedure. You can leave the hospital on the day of the procedure. It takes about 9 months to 1 year for your body to remove dead cells. If all cancer cells cannot be killed during the initial treatment, the procedure can be repeated. In order to adequately improve the whole prostate, damage to the nerves controlling the erection almost always results in long-term erectile dysfunction.
