The stories below are collected from patients and doctors who have tried the treatment
and wanted to share their experience with others who may benefit.


I am able to navigate and bear full weight on either knee without pain or without feeling like the knee is going to give away. I am able to climb stairs in a complete motion without using one stair at a time. The big news is that I cooked outdoors on Sunday. (YAAAY!!!!) So far the treatment has had a noticeable positive effect on my quality of life.

I think this technology has the potential to change the current paradigm of pain management. The patients that I have treated are all grateful to have an option that is very safe and that has allowed them to get back to functionality quickly.

Wow, I was so depressed when I walked in and now I feel like I’ve won the lottery! I now have no pain at all! I have had to deal with constant pain for years and have to take medications just to help me get through. When I walked in my pain was an 8 on the scale and now it’s a zero, I can put weight on my knee and feel no pain, I’m so excited about this treatment.



Day-to-day life for me has not been easy. Dependent on medications just to get through the day was the best I was expecting for the rest of my life. Dr. Podesta suggested iovera° as an option. Honestly iovera° has made a significant impact in my life. For the first time in 9 years I am now able to do things I never expected I would ever do again without the pain. Recently I was able to walk through Disneyland with my family without pain. I am grateful for iovera° and can’t imagine not having this treatment.


Immediately Following Treatment: iovera° is an amazing “God Sent” treatment. Dr. Smolins is my “hero.” If it was not for his compassion, I would still have my knee pain. My knee feels 101% better! Wow! Amazing! I love it! 1 Day Post-Treatment: I notice a better range of motion. Less stiffness. Slight soreness at the injection site when you press down on skin and there is some swelling. But best of all, I had a peaceful and restful sleep, for once!



My goal is to manage patients with non-operative treatments and postpone their need for major knee replacement surgery. The iovera° treatment offers a unique alternative to steroid injections and viscosupplementation for pain management. It is done in the office and the patient gets off the table immediately feeling pain relief. There is no medication being introduced into the knee joint, so there are no serious side effects. It has helped my patients achieve a better quality of life, rely less on assistive devices such as walkers, canes, and wheelchairs, and to either postpone the need for major surgery, or to help with chronic post-surgical pain.
