Genicular Neurotomy (aka ablation) is a brand new, innovative option for treating knee pain without surgery. The genicular nerves are the nerves that provide sensation and pain into the knee joint. There are typically 3 branches targeted with genicular nerve block – the superior medial, the superior lateral, and the interior medial genicular nerves. The procedure uses a breakthrough technology called Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) to stun the painful nerves and prevent the signals from reaching the brain. RFA harnesses the energy of radio waves to treat pain at the source, without the need for incisions of any kind.
