Our modern and friendly pain knee center is located in midtown Manhattan, near Grand Central Station.

Now let’s look in more detail at these innovative and exciting treatment options provided by the leading knee center in midtown manhattan.

Steroid Injections

Steroid medicine is far more powerful than over the counter medications, like aspirin. Steroid injections are one of the most popular options for knee pain because they directly target the root cause of the knee pain.

During this procedure, your knee doctor will inject steroid medicine directly into the knee joint capsule. This targets the root cause of the pain and reduces inflammation in the knee joint. Once the inflammation is reduced, the pain will also decrease. Some pain doctors also use local anesthetic to numb the knee and ensure it is comfortable.

Steroid injections can be received 2-3 times for maximum results. They are praised for their ability to deliver fast and highly effective knee pain relief in a safe and simple way.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Prp treatment combines the body’s own healing abilities with a holistic view of health care. Platelet rich plasma injections are one of the latest treatment options in regenerative medicine. They are used to treat patients who want a more holistic treatment option for knee pain.

During prp treatment, a pain doctor uses a syringe to draw up a small sample of the blood. This blood sample is then run through a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins quickly in order to separate the different components of the blood. The blood platelets are then collected and spun quickly in the centrifuge in order to condense them. The high concentration of blood platelets are then re-injected directly into the knee joint.

Injecting the high concentration of blood platelets into the knee encourages the growth of healthy new cells and tissues in the knee joint. This treatment option is of the highest quality and ensures the growth of healthy knee structures without the risks associated with invasive surgeries or narcotics.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is one of the most innovative areas of pain medicine. It is particularly recommended for those who want to avoid steroid medicine.

During rfa treatment, your knee pain doctor will use fluoroscopic guidance (a type of X-Ray guidance) to place needles around the knee joint. This involves the placement of 2 needles above the knee joint and 1 needle below the knee joint. Your pain doctor may then perform tests to ensure the needles are positioned in the best possible sites. Your doctor will aim to keep the needles close to the genicular (sensory) nerves in the knee. Once the doctor has confirmed the placement of the needles, they will then transmit small currents of radiofrequency energy to the needles in the knee joint. The radiofrequency energy will heat up needles in the knee joint which will deactivate the genicular (sensory) nerves in the knee. This stops the genicular nerves sending pain signals from the knee joint to the brain. As a result, long-term knee pain relief is achieved.

Rfa treatment is a popular treatment option that boasts highly effective outcomes. It has been used to treat patients with chronic knee pain and avoids the use of risky surgeries or narcotics.

Genicular Nerve Block

The genicular nerves are sensory nerves located in the knee joint. If an individual experiences knee pain, the genicular nerves send pain signals from the knee joint to the brain. This produces the sensation of knee pain.

A top knee doctor can alleviate knee pain by using a genicular nerve block. A genicular nerve block (also known as a G block) describes when a pain doctor injects local anesthetic near the genicular nerves in the knee. This numbs the knee joint and ‘blocks’ pain signals from being sent to the brain. A G block can also be used to determine pathological changes in the knee joint.

G blocks are an excellent option because they help pain doctors to both determine changes in the knee joint as well as provide knee pain relief. G blocks are a low risk and pain free way to benefit from knee joint issues.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of joint fluid. It keeps the cartilage on the ends of the bones in the joints lubricated. This helps the joint to glide easily without friction.

If an individual has a condition like osteoarthritis, it means wear and tear over time can reduce the amount of lubricated cartilage in the knee joint. This lack of lubricated cartilage means that the knee joint struggles to move, creating friction. Bony spurs can even form as a result of this friction.

However, hyaluronic acid injections can alleviate friction in the knee joint. A pain doctor can inject hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint. This helps the bones to glide more easily and reduces friction and pain in the knees.

Hyaluronic acid injections are an excellent remedy for knee arthritis. They are able to reduce pain, stiffness and swelling which commonly occur in the knee joint.
