Knee & Hip Joints Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation

blog

Knee & Hip Joints Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation (RF) is a non-invasive procedure used to treat people living with back, hip, or knee pain, and who are not ready to undergo surgery. During this procedure, water is circulated through a device while the nervous tissue is heated. This creates a treatment area larger than traditional RF treatments. Using radiofrequency energy, the sensory nerves that are causing pain are targeted, sparing excessive heating or damage to adjacent tissue.
