Used Neurotherm NT2000ix RF Generators for Sale
- OR Support has a large inventory of used and refurbished pain management RF generators for sale.
- The Neurotherm NT2000 RFA machine (radiofrequency ablation machine) is the most popular 4 lead lesion generator we sell. We track costs for all of the RF ablation generators that we sell and the Neurotherm RFA Machine costs less to maintain than other radiofrequency machines and it has a better ROI than many of the other generators, due mostly to the lower cost Neurotherm RF electrodes.
- Regardless of the brand of RFA machine you end up buying, the RF probes will easily end up costing you more than the radiofrequency machine over the life of the unit.
The Neurotherm NT2000 RFA Machine Includes:
- Four separate lesions function
- Wireless remote capability
- Dedicated Simplicity 3 single cable
- New large touchscreen operation
- Patient & Physician record-keeping options
Neurotherm NT2000 Pain Management RF Generator Indications for Use:
The Neurotherm NT2000 RF generator is intended for lesioning neural tissue. The NT2000 Radiofrequency generator is intended to be used by pain management physicians on pain
management patients. The NT2000 pain management generator is indicated for use in the peripheral nervous system.
The NT2000iX™ generator is to be used only with Neurotherm RF electrodes. (NeuroTherm™ radiofrequency probes)
OPERATION OF THE NEUROTHERM NT 2000 RADIOFREQUENCY GENERATOR
In operation, control of the RF generator is via the touch screen. The Neurotherm’s screen will show the current settings of the machine, what is being
delivered to the patient, and any error or warning messages. The RF generator’s touch screen is also used to set up a whole series of conditions
including parameters for the pain treatment as well as the Pain Physicians and Pain Patient details. This information then forms part of the patient
treatment record which can be printed out (and/or downloaded to a memory stick) at the end of a treatment session.

RF Lesion Treatment Procedures:
RF Lesion Design and Operation Rationale
RF lesioning has been used for decades to ablate nerves. Several references to the general application of RF techniques to pain
management have been provided in Procedural Overview (page 1 of the Neurotherm NT2000 radiofrequency generator instructions for use), and a detailed discussion of RF lesioning practice and principles
is presented in Testing, Electrode Connections, Lesion Sizes And Basic Procedures (page 55).
Another reference on the placement and treatment parameters for performing RF techniques is “Manual of RF Techniques”, 2nd Edition, by Dr. Charles Gauci10.
The Neurotherm NT2000iX™ RF generator provides all the standard treatment parameters in a settable and storable format. It also provides the
capability to perform multiple lesions (up to four simultaneously) allowing four levels to be stimulated individually, anesthetized, and
then lesioned simultaneously. If three or fewer levels are treated simultaneously, the remaining levels may be numbed from the
previous anesthesia injections, which would preclude the use of stimulation.
The NT2000 pain management RF generator also provides a custom temperature-time profile mode. This mode can be used to program Intradiscal Electrothermal
Therapy (IDET) procedures as well as allowing programmable temperature ramp times for any procedure.
This mode will typically be used when discreet monopolar lesions are desired. The insulated cannula is placed under fluoroscopic
control, and stimulation is usually performed to further locate the sensory nerves and also to ensure that the cannula is not in
proximity to any motor nerves. An RF lesion will then be performed at these sites.
RF lesion size is determined fundamentally by three parameters: RF electrode geometry, RF electrode tip temperature, and time. Time,
however, becomes unimportant after a few minutes, since this is an equilibrium process and lesion size no longer significantly
increases beyond a certain point in time. Testing, Electrode Connections, Lesion Sizes And Basic Procedures (page 55) provides a
comprehensive discussion of these processes.
The lesion screen is designed to allow the clear display of these parameters, and also to allow the clinician to make changes to the
default settings based on his clinical judgment.
For each active output, the RF electrode tip temperature is displayed below a graph of lesion temperature vs. time. Please see Lesion
Size Graphs (page 59) for an example. Below this graph is a digital indicator of elapsed time. A site label window allows the user to
label each treatment site. By providing a graphical display, the operator can detect any rapid fluctuations in temperature, while the
digital indicators report quantitative absolute values. Secondary parameters of voltage, current, and impedance are also displayed in
smaller indicator boxes at the base of the graphical display. A box in the lower left of the screen displays all relevant settings.
Touching this box allows these settings to be modified if necessary.
