Endoscopic Nerve Rhizotomy (Radiofrequency)
Endoscopic Nerve Rhizotomy is a highly effective yet minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of low back pain caused by arthritis. Once your physician has determined your pain is related to arthritic facet joints, this procedure may be used to relieve the pain.
It is an outpatient procedure lasting less than an hour, which involves placement of a slender tube, an endoscope camera, to burn the tiny nerve that allows you to feel the pain from your joint arthritis. The relief can last more than 2-5 years, and post procedural pain is minimal.
