Cervical Facet RF – Spine Center Atlanta

Cervical Facet RF


Radiofrequency Neurotomy also known as Radiofrequency Ablation is an injection procedure used to treat Cervical Facet pain caused by arthritis or injury. It creates a heat lesion on the nerves that are transmitting the messages to your brain to feel cervical pain in order to stop that communication and end the pain. A medial nerve ablation interrupts the pathway from the facet to the brain. It only controls the pain messages so there is no risk of any negative effect on muscles or other sensations.

Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy has the greatest success rate of any other area in the body. This is most likely because the nerve pathway is shortest form the neck region to the brain and the area supplied is much smaller than the low back for example. Most patients have relief for over a year, many with no recurrence. The nerve will eventually regenerate but will not necessarily relay pain signals again. If the pain does begin once more another treatment can be done.
