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.
