Chronic Knee Pain Q&A

Treatment with Curonix Freedom® PNS is different

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) from Curonix is a modern technique based on wireless nerve stimulation of affected nerves causing chronic pain. The Curonix Freedom stimulators are placed under the skin, close to the affected nerve, avoiding the need for tunneling to a distant site or a surgical cut down.

Freedom-1 is:

  1. Covered by most insurance payers, including Medicare.
  2. FDA cleared for marketing in the U.S. 
  3. Electrode is implanted and activated wirelessly, using technology similar to that of a wireless cellphone charger.

Chronic Knee Pain Relief

The Freedom-1 study will treat patients with painful knee osteoarthritis or total knee surgery and seeks to reduce knee pain without the risks of major surgery or general anesthesia which may result in:

  • Improvement in function and quality of life.
  • A decrease in analgesic pain medications, including opioid medication.

Our Clinical Trial Might Be Right For You
