Wireless High-Frequency Peripheral Nerve Stimulation for Chronic Refractory Knee Pain Post-total Knee Replacement.
The number of joint replacement surgeries, especially knee replacement surgeries, is rising with the rising geriatric population. Chronic unremitting knee pain post-total knee replacement surgery is a common phenomenon. Usually, the pain responds to conservative measures, including physical therapy and medical management. In some patients, the pain post-knee replacement surgery can be refractory and unremitting. In such scenarios, peripheral nerve stimulation, or neuromodulation, can be an effective option.
