What Is Radiofrequency Ablation?
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that uses heat waves to treat pain. During the procedure, a board-certified pain management specialist sends radiofrequency energy near a painful nerve to stop it from transmitting signals to your brain.
Millions of people experience the type of pain that reduces their quality of life. Severe pain can limit your movement and diminish your mental well-being. With radiofrequency ablation, your pain specialist targets the origin of your chronic pain and eliminates it.
