Coolief Cooled Radiofrequency in Bellevue and Seattle

Jean Emerson of King 5 News Health Link recently aired a segment on a new type of device used for the treatment of severe, chronic knee and pain. This device is called Coolief cooled radiofrequency treatment.

You can watch Jean’s segment here.



Dr. Attaman is one of only three physicians in Washington state offering this procedure. He has been performing the procedure since 2008. You can learn more about the procedure at the coolief website,


”Coolief” is a marketing term for a procedure in which the nerves that transmit pain from various joints are interrupted by a special needle called a cooled radiofrequency cannulae. No incisions are made, no scapels are used. This typically results in 8 months to 3 years of pain relief.

The Coolief device can be used to interrupt pain nerves from the knees, hips, sacroiliac joint, lumbar spine, thoracic spine, and cervical spine. Dr. Attaman is proficient at treating all these areas.

If you are interested in this procedure, please contact our office today!
