Understanding Non-Surgical Treatment for Knee Pain

Years ago, if you wanted non-surgical treatment options for knee osteoarthritis you could switch up your lifestyle or take medication. Initially, these options were quite effective; however, if your arthritis pain was moderate to severe, you were unlikely to experience relief without surgery.

Today, thanks to innovations in interventional radiology, you can treat your knee pain with minimally invasive Genicular Artery Embolization. And, with the emergence of new studies like those presented at the recent annual meeting for the Society of Interventional Radiology, we know that GAE significantly reduces pain for patients with knee pain due to osteoarthritis. In fact, we know that the procedure is especially beneficial for patients who are 50 years of age or older.

When presenting these findings, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital physician Kaitlin Carrato said, "We know this treatment has clear benefits in reducing pain and improving the ability to do everyday activities for patients. But now that we know it's particularly helpful for those over 50 years old, it may mean that those with chronic pain conditions, like arthritis, would benefit more from this treatment than patients suffering acute pain, such as an injury."
