Radio Frequency Ablation

Ultrasound-Guided Radio Frequency Ablation in Tampa, FL

What is Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)?

RFA is a safe and effective nerve pain treatment that uses electrical current to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, stopping it from sending pain signals. RFA is a minimally invasive treatment option with quick recovery time, returning home directly after the procedure with improved mobility.

What are the benefits?

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) is a non-opioid treatment that can provide lasting relief for people with chronic pain, especially in arthritic joints. Most patients have pain relief after RFA, though the amount of relief can differ by cause and location of pain. For most patients, pain relief lasts from six to twelve months. Though less common, some patients have experienced pain relief that lasts for years.
