Long Island Specialists
Who Freeze the Pain Away

 

All the professional staff members at the Pain Institute of Long Island understand what it’s like to plan daily activities around periods of discomfort, cancel events at the last minute due to an unexpected flare-up, and otherwise live with pain.  Our mission is for no one to endure that kind of suffering.

 

How it Works

 

The destruction (also called ablation) of nerves is a method that may be used to reduce certain kinds of chronic pain by preventing transmission of pain signals.  It is a safe procedure in which a portion of nerve tissue is destroyed or removed to cause an interruption in pain signals and reduce pain in that area.  Nerve ablation can be done in different ways. For example, it can be done using heat, cold, or chemicals. What the procedure is called depends on how it is done.  For example, it may be called radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, neurotomy, or rhizotomy.

After it is frozen, the nerves often heal themselves, because most people’s bodies have an amazing self-regenerative capacity when given sufficient time.  Many patients experience long term pain relief from just one or two treatments.

 

Our physicians at Pain Institute of Long Island have the skill, training, experience, and patience to successfully perform this procedure.
