At Alliance Spine and Pain Centers, we’re leading the way to the future of pain relief. The Intracept Procedure is one of the innovative, integrated, and evidence-based treatments offered by our practice, and demonstrates Alliance’s leadership in the interventional pain management field.
Over six years ago, Alliance’s Dr. Michael Schaufele was one of the first physicians in the country to perform the Intracept Procedure during its early FDA trials. He also co-authored the original paper showing the effectiveness of the procedure.
Once the clinical trials gained FDA approval, pain management facilities could offer the Intracept Procedure as a treatment option. Alliance physician, Dr. David J. Rosenfeld trained this past year to perform it and last month he executed Alliance’s first Intracept Procedure since its FDA approval.
The procedure targets the basivertebral nerve for the relief of low back pain. The procedure is a treatment option for patients who have not responded to conservative therapy, and its benefits include Intracept being minimally invasive, outpatient, implant-free, it preserves the structure of the spine, and it provides durable relief of chronic low back pain.
