Genicular Artery Embolization: Reviews

Have you been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee?

Has your primary healthcare provider referred you to an interventional radiologist physician for a genicular artery embolization procedure to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain symptoms?

We understand how critical medical decisions are, especially when struggling with unrelenting pain, inflammation, and discomfort.

Choosing the right doctor and facility for your GAE knee treatment is essential.

Georgia Knee Institute is proud to share genicular artery embolization reviews and testimonials from our past and current patients.

Below, we also share common genicular artery embolization side effects to help you understand what you can expect following your GAE knee treatment with us.

Genicular Artery Embolization Side Effects

Common GAE side effects include the following, which may occur at the injection site (for the catheter) or knee joint.

These side effects are typically mild to moderate and resolve on their own—without additional medical intervention—within two weeks.

GAE has a high success rate in reducing painful symptoms associated with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. It is important to understand that GAE is not a cure for OA, as it is a chronic degenerative disease. However, it is extremely effective at reducing painful symptoms and helping you delay (or avoid) total knee replacement.

Patients undergoing GAE knee treatment generally experience significant improvement in symptoms two weeks after the procedure. These benefits can last up to one year. Moreover, this procedure can be repeated as medically recommended without increasing your risk of complications, like total knee replacement.
