Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) – Knee Osteoarthritis Treatment

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) – Knee Osteoarthritis Treatment

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a groundbreaking procedure for the treatment of mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis. As a minimally invasive intervention, GAE offers a revolutionary approach to managing knee pain and enhancing joint function. This procedure targets the abnormal arteries that develop due to inflammation in patients with osteoarthritis. If you are seeking an effective, non-surgical solution to alleviate knee pain and restore mobility, explore the possibilities of GAE with our experienced team of interventional radiologists.

Minimally invasive treatment

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a minimally invasive procedure to alleviate knee osteoarthritis symptoms. Our skilled interventional radiologists use image guidance to access the genicular arteries supplying blood to the knee joint during the procedure. The physician identifies the abnormal arteries caused by inflammation in the knee and injects tiny particles or embolic agents to block or reduce blood flow. By doing so, GAE aims to decrease inflammation and pain associated with knee osteoarthritis. This innovative technique provides an additional treatment option to those seeking relief from persistent pain despite the use of oral medications and knee injections. GAE can be combined with these therapies and offers another treatment option before knee replacement must be considered. Studies have shown decreased pain and improved quality of life following GAE.
