Sacroiliac Joint Radiofrequency Denervation

Radiofrequency Treatment for Pain Relief: Simplicity Procedure at London Interventional Clinic

Chronic pain can be debilitating, affecting daily life and causing significant stress. When more conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medication fail to provide relief, radiofrequency treatment may be a viable option. At the London Interventional Clinic, our team led by our Medical Director Dr Stephen Humble, offers the Simplicity procedure to help patients with intractable sacroiliac joint pain.

What is Radiofrequency Treatment?

Radiofrequency treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses an electrical current generated by a radio wave to relieve pain. By applying the current to small areas of nerve tissue, the tissue heats up and pain signals are disrupted, resulting in reduced pain. This treatment is effective for many patients, with pain relief lasting anywhere from months to years. Radiofrequency is typically performed in patients that have had temporary responses to standard diagnostic and therapeutic sacroiliac joint injections.

The Simplicity procedure is a type of radiofrequency treatment specifically designed to treat intractable sacroiliac joint pain. This procedure offers a non-surgical alternative to fusion, avoiding the risks and complications associated with invasive surgical procedures.
