Osteoarthritis of the knee and peripheral artery disease (PAD) can intensely disrupt your everyday life with pain, stress, and other symptoms, especially as you get older. Besides chronic pain, these diseases can become worse when underlying conditions are present. These conditions are best treated by a specialist who excels in minimally-invasive procedures like the ones we offer at AVA. It’s time to take control of your health and get back to your pain-free life!
When a patient has PAD, their arteries will begin to narrow as fatty plaques accumulate. This results in blood flow reduction and leg cramps, often accompanied by sores, stubborn wounds, and infections – even amputation. However, it is possible to slow and repair PAD damage through minimally-invasive treatments, which we provide at AVA. Not only are they cutting-edge, outpatient procedures, but they also relieve pain, accelerate healing, and prevent amputation.
Osteoarthritis of the knee (also referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis) is most commonly treated with injections, physical therapy, and medications, but often these solutions don’t last and eventually lead to knee replacement surgery. Yet not everyone is physically healthy enough to go through this surgery, and it is also very costly and doesn’t always alleviate pain, along with an extended recovery period. At AVA Vascular, we provide another option – genicular artery embolization, an interventional radiology treatment that stops blood from entering the synovium (the lining of the knee), halting pain and regenerating mobility, all without knee replacement surgery!
