LONE TREE, Colo., June 15, 2022 (Newswire.com) - ECCO Medical, a Denver-based interventional radiology clinic, has begun evaluating patients and performing an innovative outpatient embolization procedure for knee pain. Also called Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE), knee embolization is a non-surgical procedure designed to block blood flow to parts of the knee that are inflamed from osteoarthritis (OA).
"I have performed thousands of outpatient embolizations. Our patients are amazed that these procedures are achieved without incisions, leading to a quicker and less painful recovery than traditional surgery," said Dr. Charles Nutting. "When evaluating patients for knee embolization, I work collaboratively with orthopedic surgeons, primary care, and interventional pain doctors in Colorado."
Dr. Charles Nutting of ECCO Medical has been at the forefront of interventional radiology since he began practicing over 25 years ago. He is internationally recognized and has introduced many procedures and devices to North America. Dr. Nutting is currently preparing a lecture for the American Osteopathic College of Radiology (AOCR) covering embolization therapies including knee and prostate embolization.
