Our Services

If you are experiencing persistent discomfort in your knee, we offer a range of four interventional treatments that can assist you in managing your symptoms effectively.

Using a live Xray (fluoroscopy), a needle is inserted into the knee joint nearest the site of the pain generator. A mixture of local anesthetic (like Novocaine) and the steroid are injected into the joint. This mixture may also be injected into the soft tissues surrounding the knee if Dr. Nairn feels that your pain is coming from this area.
A Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally-invasive procedure. Radio waves are sent through a small needle to the area of the nerves responsible for carrying pain signals to your brain. The radio waves generate heat at the tip of the needle, essentially “cauterizing” the nerves. The nerves always regenerate, but pain relief may last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years!

Hyaluronic Acid (Lubricant) Injections

Using a live Xray (fluoroscopy), a needle is inserted into the knee joint nearest the site of the pain generator. Hyaluronic acid, which has lubricating properties and is naturally present in healthy knees, is injected through the needle into the knee joint. This may help ease pain and stiffness in the knees for 6 months or more.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge treatment option, which involves injecting a portion of the patients own blood into the knee joint. Unfortunately, knee joints don't have good blood supply. When they are injured or develop arthritis, it is difficult for them to heal on their own. Fortunately, the platelet part of the blood is full of healing chemicals. When it is injected into the knee, it helps the knee heal. This can lead to dramatic pain relief which can last for a year or more.

Steroid injections, hyaluronic acid injections, and radiofrequency ablations are all covered by insurance. However, at the moment, most insurance plans do not cover PRP injections. Pain Solutions offers PRP injections at $800 for one knee and $1400 for both knees to alleviate chronic knee pain.

Our medical professionals are highly trained and experienced in administering these treatments. If you're seeking relief from knee pain, contact us today to learn how we can help you.
