My name is Vimalaben Kakadiya. I am 60 years old.

 I was having pain in my knee since seven years. I also had some swelling around my knee joint. I had difficulty in walking. I also couldn’t stand for prolonged period.  Due to the pain, I also had limitations in activities of daily living. After walking for a shorter period, I need to take a break and sit down.

I decided to consult Dr. Mohal Banker who is known Interventional Radiologist and take his advice. I took the appointment of Bankers Vascular Hospital situated at Ahmedabad.

I was examined properly by him. He is very genuine doctor and has expertise in treating such cases. He listened carefully to me and advised me for Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) which is advanced Japanese treatment for Knee Pain. It also doesn’t involve any surgery or any scars.

Genicular Artery Embolization is minimally invasive procedure for knee which provides short term and long term benefits for knee pain. I was given only local anaesthesia and no sedation. Dr. Mohal Banker and Dr. Rozil Gandhi along with the team performed the procedure. I could talk to my doctor in between the procedure.

No cuts and scars are made, so I found it cosmetically also soothing.

Due to this treatment I got my knee painfree completely in just seven days.

I also do not have any pain now in my knee and can walk effectively. I can also stand for prolonged period.

I also got to know that Bankers Vascular Centre and their team run special OPDs out of Ahmedabad, so that they could help and reach out the individuals with the same problem; which I find unique.


My pain is alleviated and I would be forever grateful for that. I am thankful to Bankers Vascular Hospital and team for the best treatment of knee.
