Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation

"Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), also called rhizotomy or neurotomy, is a novel non-surgical technique which employs radiofrequency waves to produce heat that damages the nerves transmitting pain signals to the brain. This procedure is performed to treat painful facet joints in the spine that can cause chronic low back and neck pain. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive technique and therefore administration of general anesthesia is not required."
