Radiofrequency Neurolysis Of Facet Joint

What is radiofrequency ablation (RFA)? Radiofrequency is a means of interrupting pain signals. An electrical current produced by radio waves is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area supplied by that nerve. The nerve facet joint is the target for RFA. Clinical data shows that radiofrequency ablation can effectively …
