Cervical and Lumbar Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy or Ablation, is a non-invasive treatment option for nerve pain that may be considered for patients who have had little success with other forms of treatment for their neck or back  facet joint pain. Radiofrequency Neurotomy is a non-surgical procedure and can be done on an outpatient basis. It has been shown to be most effective for individuals who have received pain relief following a temporary block of the nerve pathway to the cervical or lumbar facet joints.

Currently, there are a number of non-invasive treatments available to treat neck and back pain, and surgery is rarely warranted. Cervical and lumbar facet radiofrequency neurotomy is one minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment option available for relieving nerve pain, and is considered to be among the gold standard of treatment for pain originating in the cervical or lumbar facet.
