What is a rhizotomy?
To eradicate nerve pain, we offer radiofrequency thermocoagulation rhizotomy (RTR) at Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX. If you have had a diagnostic nerve block to identify the exact nerves causing you pain, then you may be a great candidate for a lumbar or cervical facet rhizotomy. Just like other nerve block procedures, our pain management specialists, Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, and Dr. Gabor Racz, will have the guidance of fluoroscopy throughout the treatment. While you will not be asleep during a rhizotomy, you will not feel the pain of this minimally invasive procedure. Using a needle connected to an electrode, an RF rhizotomy sends heat to cauterize your nerve root to stop the nerve from sending pain signals to the brain. Once the procedure is over, you will be taken to a recovery room. Drs. Tariq, Keelen, and Racz regularly perform RF rhizotomies and have helped many pain patients just like you find longer-term solutions for nerve pain. Contact our office for a consultation.
