Genicular radiofrequency ablation

A minimally invasive treatment for knee pain

Genicular RFA is an option for treating knee pain without surgery. By selectively applying radiofrequency waves to the nerves surrounding the knee, providers can help relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis. The entire procedure is performed outside the knee joint and may be used for patients that have failed conservative and surgical treatments or are not candidates for surgery.1
