    RadioFrequency Ablation Genicular Nerve

    Chronic knee osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common diseases of advanced age. With up to 20 million adults in the US suffering from OA of the knee, close to 700,000 cases progress to total knee joint replacement.However, there exists a large demographic of chronic joint pain patients who are not candidates for invasive procedures due to BMI,age and other comorbidities. Alternative therapies such (as) arthroscopic debridement or injections are associated with less than optimal clinical outcomes.
    STEP 1
    Xray machine is used to identify the areas around the knee and those areas are numbed up with anesthetic medication.
    STEP 2
    Guided by Xray, a needle is placed into the area next to the bone where the nerve lives.
    STEP 3

    A combination of a numbing anesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid medication is delivered to the area over the nerve.

    Pain may disappear immediately after a successful injection. However, once the numbing effect of the anesthetic wears off, pain may return. It can take 5-10 days for the anti-inflammatory effects of the steroid to fully alleviate pain and the effects of the nerve ablation can take up to 4 weeks to fully take effect. The effects of the injection can last from 6 months to a year.
