There are several modalities described to manage postoperative pain after a total knee replacement (TKR). Presently the regional anaesthesia techniques used after TKR focus on more peripheral, motor sparing blocks so as to facilitate early ambulation along with good quality pain relief. We describe use of ultrasound guided 3 point genicular nerve block (GNB) for managing postoperative pain successfully after a TKR.
