In brief: See below.

If your pain management doctor is doing nerve blocks, he would only perform radiofrequency ablation if the blocks were working and he/she thought it wise to do something with longer-lasting results.
Certainly he/she would be able to provide patient education materials that would help you understand the procedure.

In brief: Splachnic RF

The nerves that sensation to the abdominal organs are caller splanchnic nerves.
There is a radio frequency procedure to ablate or place a small cut in the nerves. This produces pain relief because the nerves no longer transmit pain information to the central nervous system. The procedure usually provides one year of relief and can be repeated with the effects wear off.
