RADIOFREQUENCY THERMOABLATION

WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION

Radiofrequency ablation uses electric current produced by radio waves to reduce pain. This procedures uses heat to treat a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IT TREAT

RFA can be used to help patients with chronic (long-lasting) low-back and neck pain and pain related to the degeneration of joints.

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS

The main side effect of RFA is some discomfort, including swelling and bruising at the site of the treatment, but this generally goes away after a few days.

HOW LONG DOES PAIN RELIEF LAST

The degree of pain relief varies, depending on the cause and location of the pain. More than 70% of patients treated with RFA experience pain relief that can last for years.

IS IT SAFE?

RFA has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat some forms of pain. It also is generally well-tolerated, with very few associated complications.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?

To prepare for radiofrequency ablation treatment, you should take a few precautions, including:

  • Do not eat within six hours of your appointment; however, you may have clear liquids until two hours before the procedure.

  • Continue to take all other medications with a small sip of water. Bring all medication with you so you can take it after the procedure. Please note: Do not discontinue any medication without first consulting with the doctor.

  • You will need to bring someone with you to drive you home after the procedure. You should not drive or operate machinery for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
