Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment in Singapore
What is radiofrequency ablation treatment and how does it help pain management?
Using an electrical current produced by a radio wave, a small area of nerve tissue will be heated up to reduce pain signals from that area. Radiofrequency ablation treatment is often used to help patients suffering from long-term lower back and neck pain. Arthritic patients dealing with pain due to the degeneration of joints may also benefit from the procedure.
On the whole, radiofrequency ablation takes about an hour to complete. There is no need for a general anaesthetic and most patients are able to be discharged on the same day. We will be happy to schedule a consultation with our pain specialists in Singapore at your convenience.
Why Opt for Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment?
Being a minimally invasive procedure, it is a useful alternative to patients who may not be ready or prepared for major surgery. Radiofrequency ablation treatment for knee, back and neck pain may provide relief for an average of 8 to 12 months with less recovery time required. Patients may also reduce their need for pain medication, go about their daily lives in less pain and resume activities.
