Radiofrequency Ablation


Radiofrequency Neurotomy

If you suffer from pain in your back, knees, arms, or other areas, radiofrequency ablation might be the solution for you. During the procedure, we insert needles to deliver radio waves to permanently turn off the pain impulses from the targeted nerves.

The technique is also known as radiofrequency neurotomy. It is a safe, drug-free, and effective long-term solution to chronic pain.

We will do a thorough medical evaluation to discover what is causing your discomfort and mobility issues and discuss the options appropriate for your condition.

Radiofrequency Ablation Q&A

We will get details about your condition, discuss your needs and expectations, and complete a medical examination. Our pain management and regenerative medicine can help with many treatments.

  • What conditions does radiofrequency ablation treat?

    It may be used for various conditions and areas of pain, including your back, knees, arms, and more.

  • How does it work?

    The procedure destroys the nerves that send pain signals from the affected areas to your spinal cord. This reduces or blocks you from feeling discomfort from the areas that hurt. Radiofrequency ablation may be repeated if more complete results are needed.

  • Is it permanent?

    Many patients have several months of reduced pain or complete relief.

  • What pain medications will I need?

    We will address the root cause of your discomfort versus treating it with painkillers and temporary measures that just mask your symptoms. Medications may be prescribed when needed, but our goal is to restore you to complete wellness without dependence on drugs.
