Injectable Phenol 6% for Genicular Nerve Neurolysis

We have physicians that are requesting the use of phenol for neurolysis, and I was curious if anyone has any experience with this.
1. Experience with efficacy?
2. Are you sterile compounding as a category 3?
3. Outsourcing from a 503b?

Thank you!
