Genicular Nerve Block
This technique applies local anaesthetic to the network of nerves that supply sensation to the knee joint. Three small injections around the knee are made under x-ray guidance to temporarily halt the flow of pain signals from the knee to the brain.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Northern Pain Centre can facilitate you obtaining a second opinion. Please discuss this with us.
