I think we’re really at the tip of the iceberg. I think this is very early—in my mid stage of the career, I will probably not be practicing as this evolves into something that’s the full standard of care in multiple joints. But outside of BPH, this is probably the biggest and probably most impactful change I think we’ll see in the embolization space in the next 10 years.—Sandeep Bagla, MD

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Sandeep Bagla, MD, about the prospects for genicular artery embolization to help patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, the state of research in this promising treatment, and how interventional radiologists might get involved.
