Knee pain may keep you from being as active as you like. And it may come from a gradual breakdown of your knee’s cartilage. That’s a protective tissue on the ends of your bones. In a healthy knee, the bones glide smoothly against each other. But in a knee with osteoarthritis, cartilage begins to wear away. Bone rubs against bone. Bony bumps we call “bone spurs” may form.
This non-operative, outpatient procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis of the knee. The technique allows the physician to inject an inflammation-reducing steroid with maximum accuracy.
During this outpatient procedure, the physician uses a radiofrequency device to heat up and disrupt the genicular nerves. These are the sensory nerves that transmit pain signals from the knee to the brain. Disrupting these pathways can provide long term relief from knee pain.
This is an injection of a medicine called HYALGAN. It’s delivered directly into your knee joint. It helps with the pain of osteoarthritis.
This non-surgical procedure relieves chronic knee pain with an injection that promotes the natural healing of damaged joints and soft tissues.
If you have pain in your knee, platelet rich plasma therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help your body heal itself. PRP can help your knee feel better and work better.

I had an amazing experience at Downtown Pain Physicians. I initially went for a consultation with Dr. Raval about persistent knee issues and immediately felt welcomed and that my issues were going to be taken care of. With everything offered in house, this office soon became a bi-weekly stop for my PT/Chiro needs (special thank you to Jose and Paige!). Sofia the receptionist was always a bright face to see in the morning, and she was always on top of any appointment changes or information I needed. I am beyond happy with everything they provided and would recommend to everyone.Naomi Bitton
