Minimally invasive treatment for knee pain due to osteoarthritis

 introduction
In this article, we review together the treatment of knee osteoarthritis with non-surgical intervention, but to be able to clarify the information in a simple and brief way, we have to view some important points, namely:
1- Definition of knee pain due to osteoarthritis, its causes, and the people who are at risk to have this disease
2- What is the minimally invasive or non-surgical intervention and its advantages?
3. Treatment of knee osteoarthritis with radio-frequency
4. Plasma treatment of knee pain due to osteoarthritis
5. Treatment of knee pain with stem cells
6. Treatment of knee pain with oil injection (hyaluronic)


What is osteoarthritis of the knee and its most common causes?
In the beginning we need to understand how the knee joint works and illustrate its internal composition:
1- The knee: It is one of the movable joints of the human body which in turn enables the leg to move forward and backward, it exists at the articulation of the thigh and shank bones in addition to the patella bone.
2. Cartilage: Its primary task is to secure and smoothen the knee movement, because it is a thin layer of tissue that lines the knee joint and it secretes synovial fluid.
3. Muscles and ligaments: which help in stabilizing the knee joint while standing and moving.
4. Meniscus: its primary function is to absorb shocks.
 

After we became full oriented with the structure of the knee joint in detail, now we can simplify a description for the knee osteoarthritis


osteoarthritis of the knee: It results from the erosion of the cartilage covering the surface of the joint, which causes a weakness in its cohesion, and as a result, cracks and tears appear in the cartilage surface until the condition progresses until complete erosion occurs to the cartilage

 

The most common causes of knee osteoarhtritis:

1. overweight, which is a common factor between the two sexes, but it is a strong cause for women’s affection, especially after menopause.
2. Age.
3. Violent sports.
4. Injuries that occur causing problems in the meniscus or in the muscles and ligaments surrounding the knee.
5. weak immunity.
6. Rheumatologic diseases

What is the minimally invasive or non-surgical intervention and its advantages?

Limited intervention: The technique of minimally invasive or non-invasive intervention is mainly to alleviate the suffering of patients in pain without exposure to any surgical intervention.


The techniques of minimally invasive techniques vary, some of which will be explored in this article.


Advantages of limited intervention:
1. Very safe and has no side effects or complications.
2. The patient can leave the hospital on the same day and return to normal life because it has a fast action.

3. no blood loss during the intervention.


Treatment of knee osteoarthritis with radio-frequency:

This technique is based on local anesthesia with the insertion of thermo-frequency needles in the pain centers of the knee joint, this radiofrequency needle is completely covered except its first part which directs the radiofrequency waves to the pain centers of the knee joint to be treated and get rid of pain. it is characterized by its minimal entry to the knee as it does not exceed One centimeter, then the patient leaves the hospital immediately to home without any complications.

 knee osteoarthritis treatment with PRP:

the preparation of the PRP passed by many steps which are:

  1. a blood sample is drawn from the patient
  2. the plasma is separated from it through the centrifugation process.

the affected part  is injected, which in turn works to treat the laceration in it because the plasma is rich in substances that work on it.
one of the most important characteristics of this method that we have in Koura clinics a medical laboratory at the highest level of efficiency, accuracy and safety in which the plasma is separated and the affected part is injected with it as the whole process never exceeds few hours.

Knee pain and osteoarthritis treatment with hyaluronic acid:
It is an oily substance completely similar to that in the knee joint, the knee joint is injected with it to reduce the friction that causes pain and its goal is to play the role of the oily substance in the healthy knee.
There are different types of source, and each has a specific duration of effect, which is the reason behind the different costs of injection.
