Say Goodbye to Knee Pain

Introducing the “No Knee Pain” Clinic – a specialized healthcare facility, located in Memphis, Tennessee, dedicated to providing relief for individuals suffering from Osteoarthritis who are not yet ready for knee replacement surgery. At our clinic, we offer an innovative and minimally invasive procedure called Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE), which targets the underlying cause of knee pain and provides long-lasting relief without the need for surgery.

Osteoarthritis (OA)

Osteoarthritis of the knee is a source of suffering for nearly fourteen million Americans. OA of the knee can be an incapacitating condition with a significant impact on your overall quality of life. Total knee replacement is frequently an option, but if you also have diabetes mellitus, obesity, coronary artery disease, malnutrition, renal disease, cirrhosis, or immunosuppression, you may be subject to increased medical and surgical complications.

What are the most common symptoms of OA?

  • Movement causes pain.
  • Sometimes your knee will ache while sitting still.
  • Your knees may be stiff first thing in the morning or after sitting for a long time.
  • Over time, you may lose the ability to bend and straighten your knee all the way.
  • Creaking and grating (crepitus). You may hear crackling noises or feel a grating sensation.
  • Your knee may “give out” or buckle.
  • Your knee may lock or stick.
  • Your knee may get puffy all around or on one side.

Genicular Artery Embolization

At the NoKneePain clinic, we specialize in genicular artery embolization, a minimally invasive and highly effective procedure for treating chronic knee pain. Our team of experienced physicians and staff are committed to delivering personalized care and support to every patient, helping them achieve their goals and get back to doing the things they love. Genicular artery embolization (GAE), is a newer, minimally-invasive procedure to reduce knee pain for patients with osteoarthritis. It is being performed by those doctors and facilities that are the most current in the understanding and use of advanced medical techniques. The pain reduction achieved by GAE is accomplished by reducing the blood flow to the lining of the knee. It is a safe, modern treatment with faster recovery.

What happens during the GAE procedure?

GAE is performed either under local anesthesia or with moderate ‘twilight’ sedation

A small catheter (a thin hollow tube) is inserted into an artery with the use of a fluoroscope.

Particles are then injected through the catheter into the arteries, reducing blood supply.

This in turn reduces the inflammation associated with osteoarthritis


As an outpatient procedure, patients go home the same day.

No physical therapy is needed. There is no incision, wound, or sutures.
