Step 1

The Intracept probe advanced into vertebrae and positioned at the basivertebral nerve.

Back pain relief

Step 2

Radiofrequency energy (heat) is delivered to the nerve.

Low back pain

Step 3

The nerve is disabled, rendering it unable to transmit pain signals.

If you suffer from chronic low back pain, you may be a candidate for the INTRACEPT Procedure.

The study is evaluating the Intracept Procedure – a minimally invasive procedure for the relief of chronic low back pain.
During the procedure, Dr. Nguyen makes a small (3-5mm) incision in the lower back. Following this, a specialized probe is advanced into the vertebrae and positioned at the precise location of the pain-sensing basivertebral nerve. Once positioned, the Intracept probe uses radiofrequency energy (heat) to disable the basivetebral nerve, rendering it unable to transmit pain signals.

Indications and Risks

The Intracept Intraosseous Nerve Ablation System is intended to be used in conjunction with radiofrequency (RF) generators for the ablation of basivertebral nerves of the L3 through S1 vertebrae for the relief of chronic low back pain of at least six months duration that has not responded to at least six months of conservative care, and is also accompanied by either Type 1 or Type 2 Modic changes on an MRI.
