Bridge The Gap to Joint Surgery

A Non-Surgical, Non-Opioid Procedure for Chronic Knee, Shoulder or Hip Pain


Watch Now

When surgery must wait, but joint pain can’t, COOLIEF* Cooled Radiofrequency (RF) can bridge the gap to joint surgery, so patients don’t have to put their lives on pause. COOLIEF* Cooled RF is clinically proven to provide up to 12 months of pain relief1,2 . When compared to both intra-articular steroid injections3 and hyaluronic acid4, COOLIEF* Cooled RF was found to provide:

  • Significantly greater and longer-lasting pain relief
  • Improved physical function
  • Higher patient satisfaction

See how COOLIEF* Cooled RF can fit into your treatment algorithm for patients with chronic knee, shoulder or hip pain.

COOLIEF* Cooled RF: FDA Cleared for OA Knee Pain

Overcomes nerve path variability when targeting the sensory branches of the genicular region under fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance.

COOLIEF* Cooled RF for Chronic Shoulder Pain

Treats the sensory branches of the axillary, suprascapular and lateral pectoral nerves.

COOLIEF* Cooled RF for Chronic Hip Pain

Targets and treats sensory branches of the obturator and femoral nerves innervating the hip joint.
