Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) Knee Pain Relief in Houston
Degenerative joint disease, also known as osteoarthritis (OA), is the most common form of arthritis. The cause of OA is typically a repetitive motion over time that causes structural joint damage and inflammation. The inflammation is the cause of pain in the knee joint and it can present with even small levels of trauma. This cycle of inflammation and damage to the joint is the cause of the breakdown of cartilage in patients with degenerative joint disease. Modern Vascular in Houston (Richmond, TX) is now performing a minimally-invasive procedure, genicular artery embolization (GAE), which can reduce OA pain by blocking blood flow to the area, reducing inflammation, which limits the pain.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) Treatment for Fibroids
Women can experience symptoms like heavy menstrual bleeding, swelling in their abdomen, and pain in their pelvis from uterine fibroids. Other symptoms include anemia, bladder pressure causing frequent urination, back and leg pain, pain during sexual intercourse, constipation, and bloating. Uterine fibroids could also distort the lining of the uterus, causing infertility. Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for uterine fibroids. UFE targets all of the fibroids in the uterus, unlike other treatments, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recognizes UFE as a safe and effective treatment for uterine fibroids.
