Finally, physicians can manage long-term relief of OA knee pain that is:

  • Clinically proven to provide up to 12 months of pain relief1
  • Minimally invasive
  • Non-narcotic

COOLIEF* COOLED RADIOFREQUENCY (RF) – THE FIRST TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC OA KNEE PAIN IS NOW THE FIRST TO BRING ULTRASOUND-GUIDED COOLED RF TO THE KNEE

The Ultrasound-Guided Knee technique for COOLIEF* Cooled RF has 3 target locations with the 4th location being optional. The technique for the diagnostic block under ultrasound is the same as the technique for COOLIEF* Cooled RF of the knee.

Target Locations:

  • Suprapatellar Genicular Nerve (Optional 4th Lesion)
  • Superior Medial Genicular Nerve
  • Superior Lateral Genicular Nerve
  • Inferior Medial Genicular Nerve

Benefits of performing ultrasound-guided COOLIEF* Cooled RF procedures include:

  • No radiation
  • Real-time guidance
  • Soft tissue visualization (including effusions)
  • Doppler

Clinical Data§ supports COOLIEF* Cooled RF for treatment of OA knee pain2

Randomized level-one, multi-center study with 151 patients over twelve months with primary effectiveness at six and twelve months

COOLIEF* Cooled RF Fills the Gap Between Short-Term Pain Relief and Surgery

See how it works!
