A rhizotomy is a safe, effective treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to burn nerve endings in the facet joints of the spine. By cauterizing the nerve roots, it aids in alleviating persistent neck and back pain. This procedure is typically recommended to men and women who have suffered from a fractured facet joint or other damage to their spine that is causing chronic pain.

We understand that the discomfort you are experiencing is real, which is why we are dedicated to identifying the underlying cause of your pain to provide the most appropriate treatment possible.
"Dr. V got me in extremely fast and made a point to make sure I was taken care of for my back pain! Got me in for my consultation within two hours of my chiropractor recommending him which blew me away but worked out perfect because of my limited time to get healed before I went back to work in the oilfield. Got scheduled the following day for injections and man did they help this morning!! Already feeling great and ready to head back to work after being so hurt that I couldn’t even walk a week ago. Highly recommend Dr. Vasireddy for any pain management problems y’all may have!!"- M.M. / Google / Oct 11, 2022

"Dr. Vasireddy is a god send! I am 60 years old and have suffered from migraines for most of my life. The older I became the frequency increased as did the intensity of the migraines. The story doesn’t end there. After multiple visits to the doctor then neurologists I found myself taking allot of medicine and to no avail. The migraines were more frequent and intense the older that I became. I met Dr. Vasireddy as I began to have pain in my leg. On the day of my appointment, I happened to have a migraine and the doctor asked me what was wrong? I told him of my migraines, and he said with a smile on his face “I can fix that”. You can imagine my skepticism as no one has ever been able to successfully control them. After my treatments I am proud and eternally grateful to him as I have not had a migraine since. Going from 4 migraines a month some lasting 4 days, to none has not only changed my life, but my quality of life is better than I could ever imagine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. He is truly a God send!"- R.C. / Google / Oct 08, 2022
"I just finished lower back pain treatments. For the first time, in a long time, I can sleep in any position without pain or discomfort. Three injection sessions in L4. Very happy with my Pain Doc (how he is listed in my contacts). Side note, the young lady that checked me in each time was super nice."- D.Z. / Healthgrades / Jul 09, 2022
"I was truly impress with the treatment that was received from Dr. Sridhar Vasireddy. I had issues with my hip for over 6 months and was referred to Dr. Vasireddy. My treatment was a hip injection with sedation. Dr. V., was very detailed in explaining the procedure and the steps he would take. He concentrated on giving me the injection to an area was called “the ring”. I highly recommend Dr. Vasireddy. He is an awesome doctor!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 12, 2022
A rhizotomy is an invasive, outpatient procedure that takes about 30 – 90 minutes to complete. At the start of your appointment, we will apply a local anesthetic to the target area and administer a sedative to keep you calm and comfortable. From there, our surgical team will use a fluoroscopy (live x-ray) to guide the placement of a long, hollow needle. An RF device is then piped through the tube-like structure to burn the nerve endings in the spine. This technique prevents the sensory nerves from transmitted pain signals. After undergoing a rhizotomy, most patients have reported a noticeable improvement in their symptoms.
