If you are experiencing pain in the middle or upper back, you may be a good candidate for thoracic facet radiofrequency neurotomy treatments. At Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic, we offer this and other advanced pain management services to patients in Ocoee, Orlando and Longwood, FL.
What is Thoracic Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy?
Thoracic facet radiofrequency neurotomy is a minimally invasive pain management technique that addresses nerves in the middle and upper the spine that are responsible for causing pain. By selectively damaging problematic nerves, this procedure can provide relief from a range of symptoms that affect the middle or upper back and the surrounding areas of the body. Even though this treatment is technically a surgical procedure, we use minimally invasive techniques and radiofrequency ablation to produce results that are quick to take effect and quick to heal.
What is Thoracic Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy Used to Treat?
Thoracic facet radiofrequency neurotomy is used to treat varying back pain conditions, and may also help treat pain from spinal arthritis or a herniated disc. These are all conditions that cause recurring pain in the back due to damage or pressure on the nerves. By using radiofrequency ablation techniques to block the signals from these nerves, patients can enjoy immediate and lasting relief.
What Can I Expect from Thoracic Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy?
During thoracic facet radiofrequency neurotomy treatment, a small needle is inserted into the problematic nerves. We will ensure that you are adequately numbed for this process. Then, radiofrequency energy is carefully administered to heat and damage the nerves. At this point, the nerves will no longer be able to emit pain signals, and the treatment will be complete. You can expect relief that lasts for at least a few months, as the nerves will not be able to transmit pain signals until they heal. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best approach for your thoracic facet radiofrequency neurotomy and tell you what you can expect from your treatment.
