Similar to a conventional radiofrequency ablation, a water-cooled RF ablation procedure uses radiofrequency energy to deliver heat and essentially burn off the nerve to result in pain relief. In this case, water circulates through the device to cool the electrodes. This allows more RF energy to be safely delivered to the target nerves. This procedure is highly effective for knee pain, hip pain, neck and low back pain. We use the Coolief ® technique at Revitalize Medical Center, the leaders in water-cooled RF Ablation.
