Genicular Nerve Radiofrequency Ablation​

Genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation (GNRFA) is an outpatient procedure which provides a non surgical approach to treat chronic knee pain if other treatment options have not been successful. Radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerves (the branch of nerves surrounding the knee) might be a successful alternative to surgery. With GNRFA there are no incisions and no need for steroid or cortisone injections. This procedure stuns the painful nerves to prevent the pain signals from reaching the brain, which allows for quality of life to improve and function to return.
