Iovera is a targeted cold therapy for arthritis and other conditions that cause significant pain.

What is Iovera?

Iovera is a safe, innovative pain relief treatment. It uses extreme cold to stop nerves from sending pain signals to your brain. This effect is immediate and can last 90 days.

The Iovera system is a handheld device that lets your provider apply just the right amount of extreme cold only to the nerves they want to target, the ones causing you pain. This process delivers immediate pain relief. Iovera does not contain medicine. Iovera treatment is safe and does not damage or destroy any surrounding tissue.

Who can benefit from Iovera treatment?

  • Iovera is indicated for anyone with anterior knee pain,
  • People who have osteoarthritis pain in the knee, and
  • People considering a total knee replacement, it can be done prior to surgery to aid
Iovera Q & A
For more information see below

Knee pain is the primary indication for Iovera. The most common conditions leading to severe knee pain are:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knees
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis resulting from prior injury
  • Perioperative pain

Dr. Carr has had so much success with Iovera treatments in his patients that 100% of his patients receive this treatment prior to knee replacement to assist with their recovery. This has led to an 80% reduction in opioid pain medication and reduced time in the hospital, with the vast majority of patients returning home comfortably on the day of surgery.

During your treatment with Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics, you may be instructed to lay down as the team works to treat the focused area of your body with the Iovera handheld device. Iovera treatment is performed on an outpatient basis.

The treatment process takes about 15-30 minutes. Cold therapy is applied by a handheld device that the team uses to administer treatment. There is minimal downtime after receiving cold therapy, and you will be able to return to your normal activities. You may experience slight discomfort due to the freezing cold. After your treatment with Iovera, you may also experience bruising, swelling, or inflammation in the treated area. However, it’s important to note that these symptoms are typical. You can use ice packs to reduce swelling. If you experience pain or other symptoms, please reach out to the team at Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics for further guidance.

Iovera treatment is considered a minimally-invasive alternative to treat pain. Nothing is injected into your body. The treatment is focused on the surface of a particular area of your body. Many people with conditions like arthritis and other types of chronic pain can benefit from cold therapy. Treatment using cold therapy may be able to reduce swelling and improve circulation, which can relieve painful symptoms.
