If you suffer from osteoarthritis of the knees and want to avoid surgery, or you’ve already had knee surgery that hasn’t helped relieve your pain, a new treatment option called Genicular Neurotomy may be for you.

Genicular Neurotomy (also called Ablation) is an innovative option for treating knee pain without surgery. By selectively applying a sophisticated type of radio wave to the genicular nerves surrounding the knee, South Lake Pain Institute is able to target knee pain from a number of causes including:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knees (OA)
  • Chronic Knee Pain
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Total Knee Replacement (before or after)
  • Partial Knee Replacement (before or after)
Genicular Neurotomy has also been indicated for:

Patients unfit for knee replacement

Patients who want to avoid a knee replacement

The entire procedure is performed outside the knee capsule, making it ideal for use before or after knee surgery if necessary.
