Genicular Nerve Ablation
If you are suffering from chronic knee pain after surgery or are you trying to avoid surgery? If so, this ground breaking treatment may be for you.
What is Genicular Nerve Ablation?
This innovative technology uses selective radio waves to block pain signals from the genicular nerves (nerves around the knee joint), to relieve knee pain and return you back to your normal rhythm of life.
This in-office non-surgical treatment and procedure takes 30 minutes and is performed under a local anesthetic. We have seen great results when other more conventional treatments have failed.
Conditions Treated by Genicular Nerve Ablation
Patients have seen success with the Genicular Nerve block procedure for the following conditions:
- Persistent pain after knee replacement surgery
- Osteoarthritis of the knee
- Chronic knee pain
- Patients who are not candidates for knee replacement
- Patients who desire to avoid knee replacement surgery
Genicular nerve ablation is a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure for patients with chronic, unresponsive knee pain. This procedure is considered a minimally invasive procedure whereby patients return to activities the same day.
Don’t suffer unnecessarily with chronic knee pain. If you feel like your knee is going out, take the next step to restoring the lifestyle you desire, pain free!
