Description

NanoScope procedure takes approximately 5-10 minutes in total, is essentially identical with respect to the technique required to perform an in-office knee injection (i. e. steroid injection), and is associated with equal (or less) risk to the patient as compared to an in-office knee injection (i.e. steroid injection).
