If you suffer from a bulging disc, herniated disc, or degenerative disc disease, your doctor may recommend a disc denervation procedure. This procedure is minimally invasive and is typically completed in less than an hour. This procedure can treat chronic pain caused by a disc condition that is not responding to other treatment.
During this procedure, you will be given a mild sedative to help relax you. After the skin is anesthetized, the doctor will move a radiofrequency needle to the affected disc. Electrical stimulation is initiated through the needle to confirm proper placement along the affected nerve. Once the correct nerve is identified, the doctor will use heat generated by radiofrequencies to destroy the painful nerve while preserving the surrounding structures. The procedure can provide pain relief from the affected disc for 8 to 24 months and can be repeated if the pain returns.
This procedure is a routine procedure and is considered safe, with risks being mild and include bleeding, infection, or nerve damage. Inform your provider if you are on blood thinners, are immunosuppressed, have an active infection, or are pregnant.
