Genicular Nerve Block & RF Ablation

New procedure for Knee Pain 

 

Dr. Ghattas , specialist interventional pain management announces an innovative new procedure for treating patients with knee pain without surgery. Genicular Nerve Block or Geninular RadioFrequency Nerve Ablation, can be done before or after knee surgery.

 

This state-of-the-art procedure relieves pain in patients experiencing knee pain due to any of the  following conditions:

 

  • Chronic Knee Pain

  • Degenerative Joint Disease (of the knee)

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee

  • Prior to or following a total knee replacement

  • Prior to or following a partial knee replacement

  • Patients unfit for knee replacement

 

 

  Patients who wish to avoid a knee replacement

                     

  The procedure is performed in 2 stages:

 

1.  Diagnostic Genicular Nerve Block – this procedure consists of placing a small amount of a local anesthetic, on the genicular nerves. This tests the patient’s response and determines if there is sufficient pain relief in the knee to justify performing a therapeutic neurotomy

 

2.  Genicular Nerve Ablation – during this therapeutic portion of treatment, your pain management physician will perform a radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the genicular nerves, restoring function of the knee and alleviating pain.

 

 

 

If YOU  or someone you know is experiencing knee pain or sufferers from any of the above conditions give us a call  to discuss what our interventional pain management procedures can do to relieve your pain.
