Genicular Nerve Radiofrequency

An effective minimally invasive management strategy for knee osteoarthritis is genicular nerve radiofrequency. During this procedure, the nerves that often cause knee pain are heated with a radiofrequency electrode. The small nerves are cauterized to block painful signals from the knee. Patients often have significant relief and improvements in function following the procedure. To determine if the patient is a candidate for this procedure, diagnostic blocks will be performed initially.
