Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a procedure that can help provide relief from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is caused by the "wear and tear" of the cartilage in the joint. It is the most common form of arthritis.

GAE works by reducing the amount of blood that flows to the inflamed areas of the knee, reducing pain. The procedure is done by an interventional radiologist or vascular surgeon.
