Genicular Nerve Block Procedure

Genicular Nerve Block procedure, G Block, is an injection of local anesthetic to the Genicular nerves. Genicular nerves are the sensory nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain. This procedure is very low risk because no other medicines are used.



During a Kyphoplasty, a small incision is made in the back using fluoroscopy; a tube is inserted and guided to the correct position to create a path into the fractured area of the involved vertebrae. The doctor inserts a balloon through the tube and into the vertebrae, carefully inflating it to elevate the fracture and return the pieces to a normal position. This creates a cavity inside the vertebrae. Then, the doctor fills the cavity with a cement-like material called polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), to stabilize the bone.
