Intracept is a cutting edge procedure that involves ablation of the basivertebral nerves for the relief of chronic low back pain that results from the degeneration of the lumbar discs. By targeting a specific nerve within the vertebra called the basivertebral nerve, Intracept has been shown to improve function and decrease pain – allowing many patients to return to the activities they love. The Intracept procedure has been demonstrated in clinical trials to improve both pain and function more than five years post procedure.
- Minimally invasive, outpatient procedure
- Treatment option for patients who have not responded to conservative therapy
- Implant-free and preserves the structure of the spine
