Radiofrequency Lesioning and/or Nerve Ablations are minimally invasive procedures performed under live X-Ray guidance to treat back and neck pain by using precisely controlled heat to temporarily and selectively disable nerves responsible for pain. The procedures involve inserting specialized needles with a heated tips near the problematic nerve(s), where the heat interrupts the nerve’s ability to send pain signals.  These procedures take approximately 15 minutes to perform and are usually performed under monitored anesthesia care.
