Now Offering the Latest Technology for Knee Pain

Radiofrequency ablation (or RFA) is a procedure used to reduce pain caused by degeneration of joints and arthritis. An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby turning off pain signals from that specific area.
 
The degree of pain relief varies, depending on the cause and location of the pain. While not guaranteed, on average patients after knee radiofrequency ablation experience a 70% reduction in pain lasting between 6 and 12 months without medications. The procedure can then be repeated if the pain returns.
 
Radiofrequency ablation of the knees is a minimally invasive, safe, effective means of controlling pain. For those patients that have had knee replacements and still have pain, patients who are not candidates for knee replacement, or those that wish to put off knee replacement for years, radiofrequency ablation is an important option.
