Cervical Facet Radio Frequency (RF) Neurotomy - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration series shows how a cervical facet radio frequency neurotomy procedure is used to treat chronic neck pain. The drawings describe and illustrate how a pain specialist uses fluoroscopy to place a needle probe at the nerve supplying the vertebral facet joint, the medial branch of the dorsal ramus of the spinal nerve. The second image shows radiofrequency (RF) energy injuring the nerve, thereby cutting off pain signals to the brain.
