Evolution of Intracept® Procedure
Intracept is a minimally invasive procedure that integrates two decades of scientific research on the basivertebral nerve and its role in CLBP. Following a small incision, instruments and Xray guidance is used to reach the basivertebral nerve. Once the correct position is verified radiofrequency energy, or heat, ablates the basivertebral nerve which in turn will stop the transmission of pain signals. Intracept is an outpatient procedure, which does not involve an implant or change the structure of the spine.
