Radiofrequency Ablation of Peripheral Nerves
Radiofrequency Ablation of Peripheral Nerves is a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to selectively disrupt the nerves transmitting pain signals to the brain. The goal of this procedure is to reduce chronic pain in a targeted area, which can significantly improve mobility and quality of life.
Who is a Candidate for Radiofrequency Ablation?
Patients experiencing chronic pain from peripheral nerve conditions, such as neuropathy or nerve entrapment syndromes, who have not found sufficient relief from conservative treatments, might be excellent candidates for RFA. At SOLUTIONS Pain and Spine, our skilled team performs comprehensive evaluations to establish if Radiofrequency Ablation is the optimal treatment for your specific condition.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
During the RFA procedure, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the treatment area. Under the guidance of real-time imaging, a specialized, insulated needle is accurately placed near the targeted nerve. A small electrode passed through the needle delivers the radiofrequency energy, heating and disrupting the nerve’s ability to transmit pain signals.
The entire process typically takes less than an hour. Most patients can return home the same day, and full recovery usually occurs within a few days to a week.
