Sacroiliac Joint Nerve Ablation
A Sacroiliac Joint Nerve Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to target nerves that are causing sacroiliac joint pain. It can take from 24 to 45 minutes depending on the physician and technique used
This procedure is minimally invasive and requires no general anesthesia, meaning the patient can return home shortly after the procedure. Patients can return to work the day after the procedure, as well. The pain relief should start to occur within one to two weeks of the procedure.
Sacroiliac joint nerve ablations have been shown to provide chronic back pain patients with up to 24 months of pain relief and improved physical function.
