Patients who find relief from the Intracept Procedure often describe pain in the middle of their low back that is made worse by physical activity, prolonged sitting, bending forward, or with bending and lifting.
Proven Relief of Vertebrogenic Pain
NEARLY 80% of patients in a recent long-term study would have the Intracept Procedure again for the same condition.
AFTER 5 YEARS, 65% of patients reported resuming the level of activity they enjoyed prior to low back pain in a recent long-term study.
LESS THAN 0.3%
report serious Intracept Procedure-related complications.
BASED ON OVER 30 YEARS
Meet the Intracept Procedure
Chronic low back pain steals so much of life. Now there’s a way to get back to living. The Intracept Procedure: the outpatient procedure for proven relief of chronic vertebrogenic low back pain.
Multiple Clinical Trials Demonstrate:
Strong safety profile with less than a 0.3% rate of serious Intracept Procedure-related complications reported across nearly 400 clinical trial patients.1
Two Level I RCTs demonstrate that the Intracept Procedure is an effective treatment compared to both a sham-control procedure and to non-surgical standard care.2,3
Significant improvements in function and pain seen at 3 months post the Intracept Procedure are sustained more than 5 years after a single treatment.2
Consistency across clinical studies with results reproduced in a typical community spine practice.2-6
Just Clear, Rigorous, High-Quality Data.
The Intracept Procedure Can Relieve the Pain
The Intracept Procedure is a same-day procedure performed in an outpatient surgery center. Unlike some major surgeries, the Intracept Procedure is implant-free and preserves the overall structure of the spine
