Facet joint denervation

Facet joints can also suffer from wear. These joints are very small and must bear a heavy load, which is why the treatment is more complex than with hip or knee joints.

Conservative treatment for wear of the spine

Nowadays, there is also a conservative treatment for osteoarthritis of facet joints, also called facet joint syndrome or spondylarthrosis.

With an ultrafine heat probe, the physician temporarily obliterates the nerve fibres that conduct the pain from the joint to the central nervous system. The treatment, which is performed with a local anaesthesia and permanent X-ray control, takes approximately half an hour.
An inpatient stay is not required. After resting for half an hour, you can return home.

Hygiene rating for joint injections and / or invasive therapy

In order to carry out minimally invasive interventions such as vertebral joint denervation for the benefit of the patient, maximum hygiene is essential.
