Is Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) Right for You?

This life-changing treatment might be exactly what you need.

Effective Supplemental Treatment for Residual Knee Pain

At Arthritis Knee Pain Centers, we use a NEW, innovative treatment called Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) as a powerful solution for patients grappling with secondary knee pain attributed to persistent knee inflammation. Individuals afflicted with knee osteoarthritis often endure the distress of inflammation, which can pave the way for the development of abnormal blood vessels around the affected knee area.

These abnormal blood vessels, stemming from chronic inflammation (swelling), cause nerve pain. GAE is a transformative procedure specifically developed to eliminate these abnormal blood vessels and resolve the associated nerve pain.   >> Schedule a screening.

How does GAE work?

As our physicians numb your skin, you might feel a slight “pinching” sensation. You’ll find that the procedure closely resembles the feeling of having an IV placed in your arm or hand, although it is put in the leg. Rest assured, the procedure minimizes discomfort, with no incisions required.

Our specially trained, and highly skilled doctors then inject a medical contrast dye that shows up on a live motion X-ray. This allows the doctor to see the abnormal arteries so we can pinpoint where the treatment will do the most good. Tiny, sterile beads are injected to block the abnormal arteries. These beads are about the width of a human hair and are permanent.

GAE is particularly effective with patients who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knees and are receiving viscosupplementation gel injections as well. One of its most compelling features is the enduring relief it delivers. Most patients don’t need an additional treatment. GAE is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment for resolving secondary knee pain. It is highly effective and  a testament to medical ingenuity and precision.

How GAE works

Is Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) Right for You?

If you’re still grappling with persistent arterial knee pain, Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) might be the solution you’ve been searching for. This advanced treatment is designed to address residual knee discomfort, particularly in cases where traditional knee injections haven’t yielded the desired relief.

GAE offers a cutting-edge approach, targeting the underlying cause of your pain with precision. GAE could provide the breakthrough you need if you’ve experienced ongoing discomfort despite prior treatments. Notably, many patients report significant improvement just a few days after the procedure, highlighting how quickly it works. There is minimal downtime associated with the GAE procedure. 

Consider exploring the potential of Genicular Artery Embolization as an option to alleviate your persistent knee pain. Our expert medical staff at Arthritis Knee Pain Centers can guide you through the process, helping you make an informed decision about whether GAE is the right fit for your unique needs.

Should I Continue Knee Injections?

Absolutely, and here’s why: 

While both GAE and viscosupplementation injections address knee pain, they do so in different ways. GAE’s methodical closure of abnormal blood vessels directly addresses inflammation-related pain, offering one level of relief. Conversely, viscosupplementation injections work to restore the joint’s lubrication and cushioning, making them an excellent option for alleviating discomfort associated with osteoarthritis. 

Bottom line: GAE and Viscosupplementation injections treat two different kinds of pain. Treating both types of pain provides better outcomes.

H2: Get Back to Doing What You Love with GAE

If you experience residual discomfort even after knee injections or other treatments, Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) could be the key to a renewed passion for life and fun activities.

GAE stands as a promising solution, offering effective supplementary relief for those seeking a comprehensive approach to their knee pain.

GAE doesn’t seek to replace existing treatments; rather, it works in harmony with them for greater overall impact. At Arthritis Knee Pain Centers, we’re committed to customizing your care journey, and GAE presents a dynamic tool in our pursuit of your well-being. Let GAE be the bridge that leads you back to the vibrant life you’ve longed for.
