Coolief is a minimally-invasive radiofrequency treatment that deactivates nerves that send pain signals to the brain. It is the only known radiofrequency pain management treatment that uses water. As water circulates through the Coolief device, pain-causing nerves are targeted without excessive heating. This water-cooling technology allows for two things: the ability to treat a larger surface area, and a higher likelihood of targeting the specific nerves that are causing pain.
Coolief is an excellent treatment option for patients who want to avoid the cost and painful, lengthy recovery times associated with conventional surgery. After a Coolief treatment, patients typically experience pain relief within one to two weeks.

As a leading sports medicine physician, Dr. Jacob DiCesare knows first-hand how devastating a sports injury can be to a patient. Standard orthopedic practices are often quick to perform surgery or prescribe steroids for sports injuries, but such methods are not always necessary, or even ideal for long-term health. Dr. DiCesare specializes in non-surgical treatment options to help patients avoid the expense and long recovery times that typically come with having surgery.
One of the exciting, non-surgical treatments offered by Dr. DiCesare is Coolief--an innovative outpatient procedure that uses cooled radiofrequency energy. This energy safely targets sensory nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain. Over half of all sports-related injuries are knee injuries. Coolief produces excellent results for patients suffering from chronic knee pain, making it an ideal, medication-free treatment option for sports injuries.
Patients with sports injuries that receive Coolief enjoy up to 12 months of continuous pain relief, improved mobility, and a speedy recovery time. Get back to feeling like yourself again. Request an appointment today to see if Coolief is right for your sports-related injury.
Over 3 million US adults suffer from osteoarthritis. This type of arthritis occurs when joint cartilage is gradually worn down over time, causing pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees, or hips. Fortunately, this painful condition does not always need to be treated surgically.
Coolief provides osteoarthritis patients with a surgery-free, minimally-invasive treatment option. It works by targeting the sensory nerves that create pain. Moreover, Coolief is the first and only radiofrequency treatment that is FDA-cleared for the relief of osteoarthritis knee pain, and dramatically improves long-term physical function for up to one year.
Most patients will enjoy pain relief in just one to two weeks following a Coolief treatment, and relief can last up to 2 years. After the procedure is done, patients can return home. Dr. DiCesare can help you determine whether or not Coolief is right for you. Call or request an appointment online today to learn more!
