Genicular neurotomy is the most advanced and the latest innovative and non-surgical option for treating knee pain. This procedure uses radiofrequency ablation that halts genicular nerves from sending pain signals to the brain.
Genicular neurotomy is an ideal, non-surgical treatment option for patients with chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis that have failed conservative measures. Genicular neurotomy can be performed on patients who are trying to delay knee replacement, patients who are not candidates for knee replacement due to medical reasons, or on patients with chronic knee pain despite undergoing a knee replacement. With this treatment, improvement in knee or joint pain occurs almost immediately.
Our pain management office in Charlotte uses the COOLIEF* cooled radiofrequency treatment in genicular neurotomy. COOLIEF* cooled radiofrequency treatment is a minimally invasive and non-opioid procedure. It helps alleviate if not relieve even the most severe pain in your knees or other joints.
At Advanced Sports & Spine, we put the patient first. You will always see the same provider during your clinical visits to establish continuity of your care. Our holistic approach to patients ensures we find the root of the problem. Once identifying the cause, we utilize a combination of exercise and diet to complement medical and interventional pain management approaches to help alleviate the patient’s pain.
Our goal is to get you back to living your life with improved function and quality of life as quickly as possible.
Genicular neurotomy is a procedure that treats patients with chronic knee and even hip or shoulder pain caused by osteoarthritis. This procedure can be performed on patients who may or may not have undergone knee replacement surgery or who are not candidates for a knee replacement surgery.
Genicular neurotomy can be done with the COOLIEF* Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation treatment. While traditional genicular neurotomy provides pain relief that lasts for 6 months, genicular neurotomy with COOLIEF* can last for up to 2 years.
COOLIEF* treatment is an advanced procedure that uses cooled radiofrequency energy. The cooled radiofrequency safely targets the sensory nerves that are responsible for sending pain signals to the brain.
The COOLIEF* technology has a generator that transmits small current radiofrequency energy through insulated electrodes. It also uses ionic heating that is produced by the friction of charged molecules. The ionic heat thermally deactivates the nerves that send pain signals.
Unlike other radiofrequency machines, COOLIEF* circulates water through the device while heating nervous tissues. This process creates a larger treatment area that increases the opportunity in relieving pain. The combination of the heating and cooling process targets the pain-transmitting nerves leading to pain relief.
We offer the latest and most advanced technique in relieving patients suffering from knee, and other joint pain caused by osteoarthritis. COOLIEF* is the first and only FDA-cleared cooled radiofrequency treatment for moderate to severe osteoarthritis. Whether it is just an irritating throbbing pain or a relentless shooting pain, COOLIEF* provides the right treatment option for you.
