Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy

During this minimally-invasive procedure, the physician uses heat from radio waves to treat painful facet joints in your neck. This procedure is also called radiofrequency rhizotomy. It can treat pain that doesn't respond to medications or to physical therapy. It is performed as an outpatient procedure in our Citrus Park Surgery Center. Relief usually begins in 3-5 days and continues to improve.
