What is radio frequency ablation?Can it work for calming inflammation of  irritated ilioinguinal nerve?

Yes: Before an ablation you would normally undergo at least two nerve blocks of the nerve to see if the there is any positive pain reduction.

Discuss in detail with the doc recommending the procedure. ...Read more
