Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation, or RFA for short, is a medical procedure used to treat certain health conditions, especially in the realm of pain management and cancer treatment. Imagine it as a targeted “heat therapy” for problematic tissues in your body.

Dr. Maxime Debrosse uses a special machine that generates high-frequency electrical currents. These currents are directed to a specific area inside your body, often through a thin tube called a catheter or a needle. When these electrical currents reach their destination, they produce heat. This heat is precisely controlled to create a small, controlled burn. The heat generated during RFA can be used to treat things like painful nerves. It is like getting rid of the troublemakers without invasive surgery. The heat effectively damages or destroys the problematic tissue, which can help relieve your pain.

The best part? Recovery from RFA is usually quicker and less painful compared to surgery. It is a bit like using a laser beam to fix a problem without making a big mess. However, not everyone is a candidate for RFA, so it is essential to discuss your options with our physician to see if this procedure is right for you.
