Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a procedure that is mostly used to reduce pain by passing an electrical current that is being produced by a radio wave in order to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.
RFA can be used to help patients with chronic or long-lasting low-back or neck pain and pain related to the degeneration of joints resulting from arthritis. The types of physicians who perform radiofrequency ablation include physiatrists (PM&R), radiologists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, and surgeons.
The procedure is usually performed in an outpatient procedure that has access to fluoroscopy.
