Radio Frequency ThermoCoagulation is also known as “RFTC”, “Nerve Ablation”, “Rhizotomy”

For pain caused by degenerative facet joints in the spine, radio frequency rhizotomy is a therapeutic procedure that offers relief. This procedure uses radio frequencies to heat and destroy the nerves that carry the pain signals to the brain from the facet joint experiencing pain. Radio frequencies are a safe and focused method of delivering specific heating treatments to localized areas.
