Pulse Radiofrequency Ablation (PRF) procedure is usually around two hours long. It is used to block the injured nerves in the body from transmitting pain caused by different conditions such as nerve damage or irritated nerves.
When PRF is applied to a nerve, it affects only the nerve area that sends pain signals to the brain. Using the same technique as RFA (Radiofrequency ablation), Pulse Radiofrequency Ablation can offer additional pain relief when other treatments (such as epidural injections) fail. It is the best option for patients experiencing chronic nerve-related pain.
