How is the Procedure Performed?

Endoscopic Rhizotomy is a minimally invasive, targeted treatment for chronic pain caused by facet joint syndrome. Here’s a brief overview of the process:


Patients receive local anesthesia and mild sedation for comfort during the procedure.


A small needle and guide wire are inserted near the affected facet joint using fluoroscopic guidance.


A thin, flexible endoscope with a camera and light is inserted through a small incision, allowing the physician to visualize the target area.


Nerve Identification:
The medial branch nerve responsible for transmitting pain signals is located.


A specialized radiofrequency device is used to disrupt the nerve's ability to transmit pain signals without damaging surrounding tissues.


The procedure typically takes less than an hour, and most patients can return home the same day. Pain relief is often experienced within days or weeks of the procedure.
