MUSC First in South Carolina to Use truFreeze Spray Cryotherapy

MUSC Nurse Practitioner Tammy Davidson talks
about truFreeze Spray Cryotherapy
truFreeze uses a patented technology to deliver
extremely cold liquid nitrogen inside the esophagus.

Gastroenterologists at Medical University of South Carolina's Digestive Disease Center are the first in South Carolina to provide truFreeze® spray cryotherapy for patients suffering from esophageal disease. This minimally invasive technology involves placing a small catheter in a standard endoscope to spray extremely cold liquid nitrogen to ablate targeted tissue inside the esophagus.

The truFreeze spray cryotherapy system is a new option for the millions of people who suffer from disorders of the esophagus, the tube that propels food to the stomach. Esophageal disorders occur most frequently due to structural abnormalities, motility (movement) disorders, inflammatory disorders, and acid reflux disease (GERD).
