Understanding Genicular Nerve Ablation-Chronic Knee Pain

Chronic Knee Pain

Chronic knee pain, often linked to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or injury, can significantly impact daily life. Genicular nerve ablation is a minimally invasive approach that targets pain-transmitting nerves in the knee using radio frequency technology. By applying controlled heat, these nerve pathways are deactivated, providing lasting pain relief by interrupting pain signals. This process offers a potential solution for those unresponsive to conventional treatments, helping to improve everyday functioning.

Symptoms of Chronic Knee Pain:

  • Persistent discomfort even after conventional treatments
  • Limited mobility, hindering daily activities.
  • Reduced quality of life due to constant pain
  • Disruption of sleep, mood, and overall well-being

Genicular Nerve Ablation Treatment:

  • A minimally invasive procedure
  • Precise targeting of pain-transmitting nerves
  • Performed under light sedation
  • Short recovery time compared to traditional surgery

Benefits of Genicular Nerve Ablation:

  • Long-lasting Relief: Offers enduring pain reduction beyond standard treatments
  • Enhanced Mobility: Improved ability to perform daily tasks and activities
  • Minimally Invasive: Less trauma compared to open surgery
  • Improved Quality of Life: Reduced pain leads to improved sleep, mood, and overall well-being
  • Reduced Reliance on Medications: Potential to decrease dependence on pain medications
