Cold Therapy

If your doctor recommends buying a cold therapy unit to use after surgery, you can purchase it through the Mass General Foot & Ankle retail store. If you purchase the unit this way, it will be delivered to you at the ASC on the day of your surgery. Please note, if you purchase a cold therapy unit, you will need a supply of ice at home after your surgery.
