I have never met a Doctor that was so caring and informative, GREAT bedside manner. I can not say enough about his staff, they were right on top of things and as well showing the empathy when I was in so much pain. They work very hard to make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed about the procedure.


Happy Patient

What is Rhizotomy?


Using advanced technology, Rhizotomy is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces pain by cauterizing the small nerve endings. Essentially, the nerves that are creating pain signals are “turned off”.


Benefits of Rhizotomy


There are several benefits for selecting rhizotomy. In general, the procedure has a high success rate in terms of its ability to relieve neck and back and knee pain. Additional benefits of rhizotomy are:

  • Low-risk
  • Quick recovery
  • Minimally invasive
  • Re-stabilizes the joints and spine
  • Can be repeated as necessary


Are you a Candidate?


Before undergoing any of these procedures, our staff will perform a series of tests to be sure the appropriate source of pain is determined. Following a thorough evaluation, it might be determined that a rhizotomy could be the solution for providing significant pain relief for patients suffering from the following conditions:

  • Chronic neck or lower back pain
  • Spondylosis
  • Lumbago
  • Scoliosis
  • Knee pain
