Above procedure is a genicular nerve block used to treat knee pain for patients that have had prior knee surgery or are not candidates for knee surgery. First, there is the test block which includes several needles being placed around the knees. If there is good short term relief, then we do the genicular nerve rhizotomy which should last several months. There is short term soreness after the procedure but patient's should be feeling better in about a week or so. Above is one patient's experience.
