Regenerative Therapies

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure that is usually done as outpatient treatment. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes and pain relief after RFA is typically experienced 1 to 3 weeks after the injection. Post-procedure, pain relief lasts from 9 months to more than 2 years.

In this procedure, performed under image guidance like USG or X-ray, the nerve fibers carrying pain signals to the brain are destroyed using heat. It is a relatively safe and effective procedure for chronic pain conditions. RFA provides long-term pain relief in patients suffering from chronic neck, back, lower back, osteoarthritis knee pain, etc.

Post-procedure patients are monitored for 2 hours and are allowed to resume their daily activities.

  • Conventional radiofrequency
  • Pulsed radiofrequency
  • Cooled radiofrequency
  • Bipolar radiofrequency
  • Multichannel radiofrequency
  • Reduce pain for a longer duration
  • Improve the neck, back, knee, and shoulder functions by improving the range of motion.
  • Avoid or delay surgery

The effectiveness of radiofrequency depends on multiple factors like the accuracy of diagnosis, anatomical variations of nerve, and techniques. Some patients experience 100% pain relief after 10 days of the procedure, while others may get relief after two or three weeks. However, if individual experiences no relief even after 3 weeks of the procedure, then the procedure might not be successful and should be repeated.

RFA is a relatively safe and low-risk procedure. However, some people may experience certain side effects and/or complications from this treatment. It is therefore advised to discuss the potential risk of developing any adverse reactions or side effects of RFA with a doctor prior to this treatment.
