Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation in Torrance, Southbay, Westside

Pacific Pain & Wellness Group specializes in Radiofrequency Ablation, a minimally invasive procedure that can provide lasting relief to patients suffering from facet joint pain.

Radiofrequency Ablation Procedure

Radiofrequency Ablation involves applying heat to certain nerve pathways to stop the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Performed on an outpatient basis, this procedure only requires local anesthetic and mild sedation, minimizing possible complications resulting in open surgery and general anesthesia.
