Knee Pain Relief Without Surgery
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a condition where the joint cartilage between bones becomes damaged or breaks down. Osteoarthritis affects over 30 million US adults, and typically worsens with age.
What is Genicular Artery Embolization?
Genicular Artery Embolization
An innovative new procedure called genicular artery embolization (GAE) allows people to achieve relief from knee pain without the need for surgery. GAE is a minimally invasive procedure performed in an outpatient setting. During a GAE procedure, our expertly trained physicians make a slight incision in the upper thigh and insert small catheters, aided by image-guided technology, to the arteries supplying the lining of the knee. Tiny particles are then injected into these arteries, blocking the blood flow, and reducing the inflammation, which alleviates the pain.
