What is Coolief* Radiofrequency Treatment for Genicular Neurotomy?
Coolief Cooled RF is a minimally-invasive, outpatient treatment that can safely treat chronic pain. This advanced procedure uses cooled radiofrequency energy to safely target the sensory nerves causing pain. Coolief circulates water through the device while heating nervous tissue to create a treatment area that is larger than conventional RF treatments.
What is COOLIEF Cooled Radiofrequency?
Every patient has the right to pain relief, but surgery doesn’t always have to be the answer. With Cooled RF, an outpatient, minimally invasive, non-surgical option does exist1,2.
