This article outlines the indications and technique of selective denervation for chronic knee pain secondary to neuromata from prior surgery or trauma and describes the results obtained in a series of patients who underwent selective denervation for neuromatous knee. Of the 13 patients in this series, 3 (23%) rated their outcome as excellent, 7 (54%) rated the outcome as good, and 3 (23%) rated the outcome as poor; no patient rated the outcome as worse. Several case reports are included to illustrate the procedure. This technique should be considered an option in select patients with neuromatous knee pain.
