Intracept Procedure Steps

The Intracept Procedure is a treatment for the relief of chronic low back pain. An outpatient, minimally invasive procedure, Intracept targets a nerve inside the vertebrae in the spine. Using radiofrequency energy (heat), the procedure disables the nerve to prevent the transmission of pain signals to the brain.

If you have experienced chronic low back pain for more than 6 months and have not received adequate relief through conservative care of at least 6 months, you may be a candidate for the Intracept Procedure.

In a 225-patient clinical trial, Intracept was demonstrated to be a safe and effective treatment for the relief of chronic low back pain. Patients in the trial who successfully received the Intracept Procedure and were compliant with the study protocol experienced an average decrease in pain of 44% at the 3-month follow up. These same patients continued to improve and reported an average decrease in pain of 53% at the 24-month follow up.

Clinical Trial Key Findings

The FDA has cleared the Intracept System for the following use: 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.

What Causes Chronic 

Low Back Pain? 

Chronic low back pain, defined as back pain lasting more than 12 weeks, impacts 30 million people in the United States. Research over the past 20 years has concluded that the vertebrae are a significant cause of chronic low back pain. This pain, referred to as vertebrogenic pain, is caused when the vertebrae degenerate or become damaged and the basivertebral nerve sends pain signals from the vertebrae to the brain. The Intracept Procedure disables this nerve, preventing it from sending pain signals.
