Rhizotomy RF Nerve Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation for nerve pain relief

Dr. Glaser performs radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to provide patients with complete lower back pain relief, effective treatment for neck and shoulder pain and pain related to the degeneration of joints from arthritis. RFA is a minimally invasive procedure using radio waves to create heat and destroy the end of the small nerves that provide sensation to the facet joints. It is delivered via needle probe without damage to the surrounding tissue or nerve ganglia. The pain-relieving effects of this procedure can last from six to 12 months and, in some cases, relief can last for years.

Radiofrequency ablation has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat some types of painful conditions; it is well tolerated, with very few side effects that generally resolve themselves in a few days. A consult with Dr. Glaser can determine if RFA is a suitable course of treatment.

This procedure is also sometimes called rhizotomy; it is the same procedure but uses a different energy source.
