The Endoscopic Rhizotomy procedure is used to deaden affected nerves causing chronic back pain due to facet joint arthritis.
The Endoscopic Rhizotomy is completed with the guidance of x-rays (fluoroscope). The endoscope is used to identify the small nerve branches (medial branch) from the nerve root. A laser is then used to deaden the nerve branches, which only have a sensory function.
