Patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee may experience chronic pain that is refractory to conservative treatments.

Technology Description: Peripheral nerve ablation (PNA) involves the delivery of heat to the genicular nerve, causing thermocoagulation and localized neuronal tissue destruction, with the overall goal of reducing pain and improving function.

Patient Population: Alternative treatment options for chronic, conservative treatment-refractory OA knee pain include injection therapy or knee arthroplasty.
