With this procedure, an electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up an affected area of nerve tissue in the spine, thereby decreasing pain signals to the brain from that specific area. Radiofrequency ablation has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat certain types of pain. In some cases, pain relief from radiofrequency ablation can last from six to twelve months. In others, it can last for years. This minimally invasive procedure is well-tolerated and has a very low risk for complications.

In many cases, a medial branch block will be administered prior to administering radiofrequency ablation, to confirm the source of the pain. If a medial branch block provides immediate relief in a specified area of the spine, radiofrequency ablation may used to provide longer-term relief.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
