Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Procedure

Radiofrequency ablation has been around since 1931, treating various conditions, from chronic pain to solid tumors in multiple body systems. STARmed RFA uses radiofrequency ablation to target-treat the source of your problems without hurting your normal organs. Under ultrasound guidance, your doctor inserts the thin STARmed electrode into the targeted area to ablate (burn) the tissue with carefully controlled RF energy. As a result, the targeted structure degenerates over time while your normal surrounding tissues are preserved.

Discover the treatment you need for the relief you seek.
