IIRC stasis and static have similar greek roots, cryo just cold, though I did mean it in more of a medical way than sci-fi. Somebody mentions "stasis" and everyone thinks Haldeman's Forever War, I know I do.

The non-frozen solid part of your berth sounds great (the whole berth does actually) as it would facilitate the ability for surgery easier than frozen solid. Maybe a micro laser cutter-head on a suction tube that can enter a wound and cut a slug into pieces for removal. I have a friend who works for a company that does micro-welding of medical instruments under a electron microscope, crazy stuff.
