Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive treatment using radio waves to heat specific nerve tissues, aiming to alleviate pain, improve function, reduce reliance on medications, and potentially avoid surgery. This procedure effectively manages chronic pain stemming from various conditions like spinal arthritis, joint pain, cancer-related pain, neuralgia, heart rhythm issues, and tumours.

Suitable candidates for RFA typically experience relief from diagnostic nerve block injections. Consultation with a healthcare provider is essential to assess eligibility, considering factors like infections, bleeding disorders, or pregnancy. During RFA, a specialised needle precisely targets the pain-causing nerve, delivering heat-generating radio waves to create a lesion that interrupts pain signals. Healthy surrounding nerves remain unharmed, minimising risks. Under fluoroscopy, a thin needle guided by continuous X-rays reaches the nerve, ensuring accurate placement. The radiofrequency current is then delivered, creating the lesion. Recovery includes mild soreness and rest, with potential physical therapy for better recovery.
