Facet Denervation in Miami, FL
Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute is one of South Florida’s leading pain management treatment centers, designed to help patients effectively manage painful neurologic and spine-related conditions via facet denervation. The neurologists and pain management specialists at our Aventura, Kendall, Hialeah, and Fort Lauderdale offices deliver expert, personalized care in a welcoming environment.
Facet denervation is an effective non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy for pain management. Also known as RFD, this procedure minimizes the pain caused by injury, aging, arthritis, and inflammatory conditions in the neck and back.
When Is Facet Denervation Recommended?
Damaged facet joints apply pressure to the surrounding nerves, resulting in chronic pain. Doctors will typically recommend treatments, such as medication and physical therapy as a first option to managing your pain. Facet denervation is recommended only when these treatments prove unsuccessful.
How Is Facet Denervation Performed?
A thorough physical examination, x-rays, and anesthetic needles help your doctor determine the location of your pain. Injections are administered to the facet joints to immediately numb the area. Several sessions are scheduled based upon the severity of your pain.
You will need to arrange for transportation after your procedure as a section of your body will be numb for a period of time.
What Are the Benefits of Facet Denervation at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute?
Facet denervation targets the small facet joint in your lower spinal column to give you immediate relief from your facet joint pain. Pain relief can last for several weeks. The procedure is most beneficial to patients who continue to experience pain after other treatments have failed.
