Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy
Discover Effective Pain Relief in Coppell, TX
What is it?
Cervical facet radiofrequency neurotomy, also known as a radiofrequency rhizotomy, can help manage pain that occurs in the head, neck, arms, and shoulders. This is done by using radiofrequency signals, or heat from radio waves, to target affected facet or medial branch nerves. This heat effectively blocks the ability of the affected nerves to transmit pain signals to the brain, offering relief to the patient. Cervical facet radiofrequency neurotomy procedures are commonly recommended to patients who have not otherwise been able to manage their pain with medications or physical therapy. This could also be a great care option for those who are experiencing facet joint arthritis, chronic neck pain, cervical facet arthritis, cervical facet arthropathy, or cervical spondylosis.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Cervical facet radiofrequency neurotomy is an outpatient procedure, which means that patients can typically return home on the same day. You might feel sore afterwards, and still feel some pain, but that will gradually subside over the next several weeks. Patients can generally return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure, but it is best to confirm this with your provider.
