What is Ablation Surgery?
Radio frequency ablation is a technique for interfering/blocking pain which may originate from a facet joint. Alternatively ablation techniques have been used for disc pathology. Ablation techniques for treatment of this pathology have come from chemo- nucleolysis/, chymopapain injections into the disc, percutaneous discectomy and laser discectomy. These ablation techniques have come and gone, but in some areas of the country still persists with questionable/unproven efficacy or discounted due to safety issues.
