This minimally invasive procedure is an excellent option for patients seeking relief from pain in different areas of the body caused by peripheral nerve problems. In this article, we will provide you with detailed information about this innovative treatment and how it can benefit you.
What is Radiofrequency N. Peripherals?
Peripheral N. Radiofrequency is a medical procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to treat pain in different areas of the body, focusing on the peripheral nerves. By applying radiofrequency energy to these nerves, the pain transmission is blocked, providing relief and improving the patient’s quality of life.
In which cases is Radiofrequency N. Peripheral indicated?
Radiofrequency N. Peripherals is especially useful in cases of:
Chronic pain in various areas of the body, as a consequence of degenerative diseases, injuries, surgeries or infections affecting the peripheral nerves.
Neuropathic pain that does not respond to conventional treatments such as medications, physical therapy or infiltrations.
Patients seeking a non-surgical solution with less recovery time.
How is the procedure performed?
The N. Peripheral RF procedure is performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation if required to ensure patient comfort. The physician uses a specialized device that emits radiofrequency waves and precisely guides it to the peripheral nerves using medical imaging technology. Once in position, radiofrequency energy is applied to the nerves, interrupting pain transmission.
What are the benefits?
Some of the main benefits of N. Peripheral Radiofrequency include:
Significant pain relief, improving the patient’s quality of life.
Shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical procedures.
Minimally invasive and safe procedure.

What to expect after the procedure?
Once the N. Peripheral Radiofrequency procedure is completed, the patient will be taken to a recovery room where his condition will be monitored. In general, the patient is expected to experience a marked decrease in pain within 24 to 48 hours. However, each person is different and results may vary.
Recovery time is relatively short, and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days. Your doctor may recommend limiting certain physical activities for a short period of time and following home care instructions.
Follow-up and maintenance:
The long-term success of N. Peripheral RF may depend on regular follow-up with the physician and the performance of physical therapy or other complementary treatments. In some cases, it may be necessary to repeat the radiofrequency procedure if the pain recurs or is not adequately relieved.
