Mini open radiofrequency Ablation RFA

I’ve been suffering from low back pain L5-S1 for almost 2 years. I’ve tried everything my doctor said next step to try is the nerve block if works and then RFA. I ‘vê had steroid injection and also facet joint injection. Can anyone tell me more about Rfa i am little nervous about the procedure



  • I know a guy who was in a bad car accident.

    His wife said the RFA gave him his life back. 

    It was the difference between walking tentatively with a cane and walking on his own without any trouble and the RFA almost totally eliminated his pain too.

    He can exercise now and everything.

    I have RFA's on a regular basis. Been doing them since 2014. Work better than ESI. I have so many discs with problems. Doc can hit 3 to 4 discs at one time. More bang for the buck as they say.
