Radiofrequency Rhizotomy Treatment

Pain management procedures like radiofrequency rhizotomy (RF) provide a less invasive treatment alternative to traditional surgery for patients with persistent pain that hasn’t responded to more conservative treatments.

Radiofrequency rhizotomy (neurotomy) is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure which decreases or eliminates pain in degenerative facet joints of the spine. Using local anesthesia and mild sedation, our pain management doctors apply highly localized heat generated by radiofrequency to certain nerve pathways which shuts off the transmission of pain signals to the brain.

Benefits of Radiofrequency Rhizotomy (Neurotomy)

Patients who have dealt with persistent pain with little or no relief appreciate the many positive results of this advanced procedure including:

Short recovery time
Greater range of motion
Pain relief lasting as long as two years
Improved quality of life
Higher success rates and lower complication rates than surgery
