Millions of patients worldwide suffer from chronic pain, and are no longer helped with conservative therapies (medication, opioids, infiltrations). As an alternative our minimally invasive pain management solutions include revolutionary radiofrequency technologies and procedural needles, kits and trays made to exacting standards.
Halyard Health Radiofrequency Pain Management systems provide minimally invasive solutions for treatment of chronic spinal pain. Radiofrequency ablation is an effective means of reducing pain in selected patients on the basis of controlled diagnostic blocks. A small radiofrequency current is transmitted through the insulated needle to deactivate the nerve that is responsible for sending the pain signal to the brain. The easy-to-use digital generator with real-time graphical display has the capability to perform standard RF, pulsed RF, multi RF, and Cooled RF procedures, as well as intradiscal lesioning and annuloplasty.

Millions of patients are suffering from chronic osteoarthritis knee pain. Many patients are not immediate candidates for knee replacement surgery and other patients choose to delay surgery. It’s important that these patients know they have other options for treating their chronic pain so they can get back to their normal lives faster. “COOLIEF* Cooled RF is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical outpatient procedure to target and treat the nerves causing moderate to severe chronic knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. COOLIEF* Cooled RF is the first and only currently known thermal radiofrequency system using water-cooled technology to deactivate pain-causing sensory nerves. Safely delivering more RF energy through water-cooled electrodes creates large-volume, spherically-shaped lesions. A multi-center study looking at 151 patients proved clinically to provide up to 24 months of pain relief, improved physical functionality and reduced drug utilization. With more lasting relief than steroid injections COOLIEF* Cooled RF is reshaping thermal radiofrequency.
