This study has been designed as a 2-group, parallel, single-center, randomized, controlled, assessor-blinded trial. Thirty-six patients with degenerative KOA who complained of pain even after arthroscopic surgery, autologous chondrocyte implantation, or autologous osteochondral transplantation will be randomized to either the (TEA + EA + Usual care) group or the (Usual care only) group in a 1:1 ratio. The patients in the (TEA + EA + Usual care) group will receive TEA treatment once a week for 4 weeks for a total of 4 sessions and EA twice a week for a total of 8 sessions while continuing usual care. The (Us...
