A medical process that destroys the small nerve branches that send pain signals from the facet joint: Facet-joint coagulations
are performed with the patient lying on his or her stomach.
A mobile X-ray unit is used to determine the optimal localization for the coagulation needle in the facet-joint coagulation procedure.
During the treatment of the facet-joint coagulation, the selected nerve is destroyed by heat that lasts for a few seconds; but because of the anesthesia, it should not be felt by the patient.
