Dr. Patel meets with Dr. Yuji Okuno, inventor of the GAE procedure. Dr. Patel is attending the MSK Conference in Paris, France. This is a conference designed for IR’s to understand how to examine and diagnose a patient to determine if they are a candidate for an interventional procedure.
The focus at this conference is to discuss musculoskeletal pain which is a leading cause of disability among aging patients in the U.S. and sadly many with chronic pain are unable to get adequate treatment. Some are so advanced in deteriorating health that many treatment options are prohibitive. The conference will discuss embolotherapy as a safe and minimally invasive procedure to treat MSK pain.
“Meeting Dr. Yuji Okuno was a real delight, I have a real passion for treating patients with osteoarthritis of the knee with the GAE procedure” says Dr. Nik Patel. Dr. Patel is a leading Interventional Radiologist in Southern California, he recently opened his private practice in Murrieta, CA and provides care for knee pain. Patients who are terrified of major knee replacement surgery have the option of a same day procedure that is minimally invasive with faster healing times.
