Radiofrequency Ablation for Chronic Hip Pain: A Comprehensive, Narrative Review.
Pain medicine (Malden, Mass.)

Enough patients have contraindications to and refractory pain even after total hip arthroplasty, that there is a need to develop alternative managements for this disabling condition. This article examines the state of hip radiofrequency ablation literature including relevant anatomy, patient selection, and treatment outcomes.
