Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that burns the nerves sending pain messages to the brain. This type of treatment is performed in the office under local anesthetic while the patient is awake. Radiofrequency Ablation is helpful for patients who:
Have a history of pain that hasn’t been fully alleviated by other methods of treatment
Do not have a history of bleeding
Radiofrequency Ablation is guided by x-ray and requires advanced preparation, including a preliminary appointment, complete medical history, and the patient will need someone to drive him/her home.
Ashford Interventional Pain Solutions has helped to minimize pain and help patients feel better using this specific method for treatment that avoids opioid pain medication and other more invasive surgeries. To learn more or find out if radiofrequency ablation is right for you, please call our office or schedule an appointment today.
