Plano, Texas (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
As part of its ongoing effort to stay at the forefront of cutting-edge medicine, Victory Healthcare is now offering a minimally-invasive procedure for patients suffering from chronic knee osteoarthritis (OA). OA, one of the most common diseases of aging, is the breakdown of cartilage resulting in pain and restricted movement. Previously, a treatment known as genicular neurotomy was only FDA approved to treat neck and back pain but is now approved for chronic knee pain. This advanced radiofrequency procedure deactivates pain-causing sensory nerves to provide long-term relief from chronic pain. Victory Healthcare is pleased to begin offering this minimally invasive treatment option to patients at its Plano, Texas facility, through Lewis Frazier, M.D. and in Hurst, Texas with Chad Stephens, D.O.
“Victory Healthcare is committed to providing our patients with the best care options available,” said Steve Williams, Regional Vice President of Operations for North Texas. “We recruit the best doctors who are trained in the latest medical technologies such as this radiofrequency treatment. This procedure has proven a great alternative to more invasive surgical procedures and has given many suffering from ongoing pain relief, including myself.”
This particular radiofrequency procedure disrupts the pain signal that is sent to the brain by sending a gentle current through a small needle and incorporates water, which allows the current to flow farther and patients to experience increased pain relief.
“I have consistently had superior long-lasting results using cooled RF technology to relieve pain,” said Dr Frazier, who is trained to treat patients for neck, back and knee pain with the technology.
