Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment

Radiofrequency ablation is a treatment for arrhythmia that uses very high frequency radio waves to heat and destroy the site causing the arrhythmia. Cryoablation is uses an ultra-cold substance to freeze and destroy the site.

Radiofrequency ablation is also a treatment for some neurological conditions. A probe generates a microwave, allowing a pain specialist to destroy nerve tissue and relieve pain.
