Why Choose OIBO? ▶

What is Radiofrequency Ablation?

Radiofrequency ablation. An electric current heats a pain signal producing nerve. Pain signals to the brain are blocked. The patient experiences significant pain relief.

The procedure. IV sedation and a local anaesthetic ensure no pain or discomfort is felt. Fluoroscopic X-ray guidance is used. A tiny needled is guided to a specific nerve. A microelectrode is inserted through the needle. The patient gives pain sensation feedback. After the microelectrode is perfectly positioned, a radiofrequency current is sent through and the nerve is heated.

Recovery and results. The patient returns home shortly after the procedure. There is little to no recovery time. The patient returns to work and normal activities quickly. Pain relief is sometimes experienced immediately. Pain relief lasts six months to many years.

What Conditions Does Radiofrequency Ablation Treat?

Radiofrequency ablation treats chronic neck, back, and sacroiliac pain. Radiofrequency ablation is an alternative to open surgery and long-term pain medication use.

Our specialists are radiofrequency ablation experts. Specialists are fellowship trained and board certified. They obtain a medical history, perform a physical examination, and order and analyze medical imaging studies. An accurate diagnosis is made. A diagnostic injection is usually performed before radiofrequency ablation to ensure the treatment will benefit the patient.
