Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy

Overview

Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy are minimally invasive procedures that involve the use of heat or cold energy to disrupt nerve function and provide relief from chronic back pain. These procedures are typically recommended for patients who have exhausted other treatment options and are still experiencing pain.

What is Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy?

Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy are procedures that target the small joints in the spine, known as facet joints, that can become inflamed and painful due to degenerative changes, injury, or other conditions. During these procedures, a needle is inserted into the affected joint and energy is used to destroy the nerve that is causing the pain.

Conditions Treated with Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy

Facet Ablation and Rhizotomy are effective treatments for a range of conditions, including arthritis of the spine, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and facet joint syndrome. These procedures can provide long-lasting relief from chronic pain and can help improve your overall quality of life.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
