Treatment Offered At

Lumbar Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), also known as radiofrequency rhizotomy, is a minimally invasive procedure performed to reduce or eliminate spinal pain. Under local anaesthesia, an electrical current, produced by a radio wave, is used to heat up a small area of the nerve causing pain. This can result in decreased pain signals from that specific area.
