Is Cryosurgery (notice - not CryoShape) effective for treating keloids located on the ear? - If yes, what is the cost
[2012-07-02 09:42:23 - Dean Williams from Philadelphia]: I currently have a keloid on my right ear the size of a quarter, that i would likes removed. I previously had surgery and and this is the end result. I was wondering if you offer Cryosurgery and if so what the cost would be without insurance. I also received steroid injections also.

The cost per treatment in our office is $100 without insurance for the size of your keloid. Other treatment options include another excision ($230) followed by 3 post operative steroid injections ($50 each). The first injection is done immediately after surgery provided that your keloid has previously softened with steroid injections.
