Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to reduce pain by destroying nerve tissue. Radiofrequency ablation uses heat generated from a radio wave to remove nerve tissue, thus decreasing pain signals from that area.

Because radiofrequency ablation does not directly stimulate the nerves, it can be used without the need for general anaesthetic. Radiofrequency ablation has become increasingly accepted in the last fifteen years with promising results.
