Chronic Knee Pain
Chronic Knee Pain | Post Knee Replacement Surgery
If you suffer from chronic knee pain after a knee replacement surgery, you are not alone. Over 450,000 knee replacements are preformed yearly and approximately 25,000 of these patients continue to have pain.
There are several nerves that provide sensation in and around the knee joint. Scars from surgery(s) may cause entrapment or irritation of these nerves resulting in joint pain. Physicians at Neuropax Clinic can perform a diagnostic block to determine if the nerves are involved in your pain. This is a relatively simple test and can be done during an office visit.
If you suffer from pain after your surgery and both infection and mechanical problems have been eliminated as the cause of this pain, Joint Denervation and/or Nerve Decompression can be 80 – 90% successful in significantly reducing or alleviating your pain. You will lose no motor function with this surgery and will be able to utilize your knee soon after this outpatient procedure.
