Treat Neuropathic Pain

RCE epidural pulsed RF (PRF) at the dorsal nerve roots and dorsal root ganglia (DRG) treats radicular neuropathy.[1,2] Epidural placement enables treatment of multiple spinal levels via a single needle, and targetry of nerves inaccessible due to normal anatomy, foraminal stenosis, or hardware.[1,2] Temperature control at 42°C limits thermal effects and ensures safety and maximal efficacy.[1,2,3,4]
