Genicular Nerve Blocks & Ablations

Genicular Nerves are located around the knee and hip joints. The procedure is utilized to control pain from conditions for which there is no treatment (like pain after Knee Replacement). A diagnostic test is performed by injecting local anesthetic adjacent to those nerves. if the test  provides relief for the duration of the local anesthetic, a Radiofrequency Ablation (cauterization) of the nerves is recommended.
