    Solving Spinal Surgery’s “I Need A Third Hand” Dilemma

    Facet joints are the joints between your vertebrae that guide your spine’s movement. About 10 percent of adults suffer from chronic back pain and 31 percent of those cases have facet joint involvement. There are several treatment options available including radio frequency ablation. Innovations in treatment devices are allowing providers to have a "third hand" during this procedure.
