When will cryoablation become available in my area?
Since I first learned about breast cryosurgery in 2010 after doing an infrared scan on a woman prior to her cryotherapy, I knew I had to being this technology to the Pacific Northwest. Recently I have been frustrated because I have been sending my Oregon and Washington breast cancer patients off to California, Arizona and Michigan. I have been operating like the “Underground Railroad”! In order to speed up the process and to help women find a cryoablation clinic closer to where they live, I have taken a different tack. I want this equipment available if I ever needed it or if my daughter ever had a problem in Seattle. I want my friends and patients to have access to this breast saving technology.
So in December 2018, I became a Sales Agent for Ice Cure cryoablation equipment for the Pacific Northwest and areas beyond! Now I can actively try to get this equipment to surrounding towns and states where the women can access it more easily and not have to fly around the country to get care! Now I will be given access to a whole library of clinical articles that I can send the physician to review. I feel that within three years this will be the primary option women will want to choose if they have an early breast cancer or a “Suspicious finding.”
I will be calling insurance companies to make them aware of CPT codes to help them through the acquisition process. The breast cryoablation CPT code is 19105 and there is also a CPT code 19499 for radiology breast procedure. Other CPT codes are on the horizon. Medicare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and United Healthcare, which are national providers, are starting to pay in 19 states, and they (and others) may soon reimburse doctors in the Pacific Northwest and in other parts of the country since they will come to see how much money they will save doing cryoablation vs “Standard of care!” This is why the countries with socialized medicine have been embracing cryoablation due to its superb effectiveness and cost savings since the socialized medicine country needs to pay for the health care of its citizens!
So if you are a woman reading this and you know a radiologist or breast surgeon in your town whom you think might consider obtaining cryotherapy equipment, please speak with them first to gauge their interest, and then either you or the doctor fill out the form below or contact me through via email at contact@ProactiveBreastWellness.com. The physician does not have to be in the Pacific Northwest, since the equipment is for sale nationally and internationally.
