Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure offered by Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj to treat chronic pain associated with spinal joints or nerves. During the procedure, a small needle is inserted into the affected area under the guidance of fluoroscopy or other imaging techniques. A radiofrequency current is then passed through the needle, which generates heat and creates a lesion on the nerves responsible for the pain signals. This helps to interrupt the pain signals, providing relief to the patient.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj has extensive experience in performing RFA procedures and uses the latest technology to ensure maximum accuracy and safety during the procedure. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and patients can usually resume normal activities within a few days after the procedure. RFA is a safe and effective treatment option for patients suffering from chronic pain related to spinal joints or nerves.
