Radiofrequency Ablation Q & A

You don’t have to live with joint pain, neck pain, or back pain.   Radiofrequency ablation can provide relief. Radiofrequency ablation, also known as radiofrequency neurotomy, is a minimally invasive pain management technique that targets the specific nerve cells causing your pain and discomfort.

There are two types of radiofrequency neurotomy, which are medial branch ablation and lateral branch ablation. A medial branch ablation targets nerves that carry pain signals from your facet joints, which are the small joints that stabilize your vertebrae.  Whereas, lateral branch ablation addresses nerves near your sacroiliac joints. The sacroiliac joints connect your sacrum to your pelvis on each side of your lower spine.
