What is radiofrequency rhizotomy?
Radiofrequency rhizotomy decreases or eliminates pain from nerve damage. It can also help with some kinds long lasting or reoccurring pain. This treatment is nonsurgical, and it can be an excellent solution if you've tried conservative pain management without finding sufficient relief. In this procedure, your American Interventional Pain Institute provider uses radiofrequency energy to generate controlled heat in the damaged parts of your nerves. This stops communication of pain signals from your spine to your brain, and can therefore end your pain.
