In this week's episode of the Spine & Nerve podcast, Dr. Gurai and Dr. Joves continue our discussion of neuromodulation by diving deeper into radio frequency ablation.
Radio frequency ablation is a procedure that uses needles to target an anatomical structure (usually in our case nerves) and a probe delivers energy (usually thermal energy) to change the way those nerves are able to serve the pain signals.
Now, radio frequency ablation is not always looked upon as a component of the neuromodulation realm, but if we look back to the definition we have previously presented- "technology that acts directly upon nerves. It is the alteration—or modulation—of nerve activity by delivering electrical or pharmaceutical agents directly to a target area." Radio frequency ablation definitely falls within this realm.
Listen is as the docs dive deeper into radio frequency and the various pathologies that can be treated.
