Pain Management

 

If you have chronic knee pain, but don’t want to go under the knife to correct it, Overlook Medical Center may have the solution. Our Pain Management Center offers a state-of-the-art procedure known as genicular nerve ablation that works by blocking the transfer of pain signals from the knee to the brain. Those who may be eligible for this treatment include patients who have degenerative or osteoarthritis knee pain, persistent pain following a knee replacement operation, or are not candidates for surgery. For more information about genicular nerve ablation, please call 908-522-6121.
