RadioFrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure used to reduce pain. This technology has become a very reliable treatment option for people suffering from MORTON’S NEUROMA.

The procedure requires a local anaesthetic and imaging guidance (live ultrasound) to confirm placement of the fine point needle which is inserted into the affected nerve. It is performed by an experienced Radiologist.

A thin probe is inserted through the needle. This probe is attached to generator that results in radiofrequency energy passing through the probe and heating up the probe tip. The result of this heat is to destroy the targeted nerve and therefore disrupting the ability of the nerve to transmit pain signals.

The treatment is relatively fast taking around 30 mins to complete and is a walk in, walk out procedure. Follow up depends on the condition treated.
