About Rhizotomy

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. Our seasoned specialists at Tricity Pain Associates have been providing the New Braunfels and Seguin, TX communities with personalized pain management care for years. 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. 

Rhizotomy Treatment

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.
