Could I get some input as to where cryosurgery should be considered on the table of risk as far as management options. I have always considered it to be low but I have a new supervisor and now it is being questioned differently. Some other opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Cryo and table of risk

Many thanks

I work for a dermatology practice, and we consider cryo as "low" level of risk. There is still the possibility of burning the skin... that's my two cents...
any other opinions????

I agree, it looks like it would be low to me as well. If the patient had risk factors (not sure what they would be for this procedure) it could be moderate.
