I use the Hilotherapy machine with single use face masks for patients who have had total TMJ replacement. My experience is very favorable with most declaring it to be beneficial in reducing postoperative discomfort. One patient was so impressed he is purchasing a portable device for home use! Hilotherapy provides excellent postoperative comfort with reduction in analgesic use and length of stay. I am very keen to continue using it.
