Persistent Pain After a Knee Replacement?

Do you have patients who experience persistent pain after a knee replacement?

Dr. Timothy Lubenow, Anesthesiologist & Professor of Anesthesiology at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center, faced that familiar problem with his patient, Barbara Ford and turned to COOLIEF* Cooled RF. “It was a pain management problem at that point, which is why I recommended the COOLIEF* procedure1,” explains Dr. Lubenow. “The COOLIEF* procedure is designed to destroy the nerve fibers that innervate the inner portion of the knee joint1.”

Barbara Ford talks about how she got “99% of pain relief within fifteen minutes of coming out of anesthesia1” and how it was the best day of her life! Listen to her emotional story!
