Radiofrequency Neurotomy Treatment

Radiofrequency Neurotomy (RFN) is a minimally invasive treatment that utilises radio waves to heat targeted nerve tissues, aiming to relieve pain, enhance function, reduce reliance on medications, and potentially avoid surgical intervention. This procedure effectively manages chronic pain associated with various conditions such as spinal arthritis, joint pain, cancer-related pain, neuralgia, heart rhythm issues, and tumours.

Ideal candidates for RFN typically experience relief from diagnostic nerve block injections. Consultation with a healthcare provider is imperative to determine eligibility, considering factors such as infections, bleeding disorders, or pregnancy. During RFN, a specialised needle precisely targets the nerve responsible for pain, delivering radio waves that generate heat to create a lesion, interrupting pain signals. Surrounding healthy nerves remain unaffected, minimising risks. Under fluoroscopy, a thin needle guided by continuous X-rays reaches the nerve with accuracy. The radiofrequency current is then administered, creating the lesion. Recovery involves mild soreness and rest, with potential physical therapy to facilitate better rehabilitation.

The Benefits of Radiofrequency Neurotomy

There are many benefits to Radiofrequency Neurotomy (RFN), including but not limited to:

Pain Relief: Effectively alleviates chronic pain from various conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, or nerve-related issues, often providing long-lasting relief.

Minimally Invasive: Requires only minor incisions, reducing the likelihood of complications and facilitating faster recovery compared to traditional surgery.

Reduced Medication Dependence: Diminishes the need for prolonged medication use to manage chronic pain, thereby enhancing overall quality of life.

Preservation of Healthy Tissue: Precisely targets and eliminates abnormal tissues while minimising damage to adjacent healthy tissues.

Potential to Avoid Surgery: Provides an alternative treatment option that can potentially postpone or eliminate the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Improved Functionality: Often leads to enhanced mobility and functionality due to pain relief, enabling individuals to resume regular activities with greater ease.
