Alliance Advances Pain Management Care with the Intracept Procedure

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.

Dr. Schaufele was one of the first physicians in the country to perform the Intracept Procedure.

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.

Alliance Spine and Pain Centers is excited to offer this treatment option. If you have any questions about the Intracept Procedure, Alliance Spine and Pain is here to help. Reach out to any of our pain care specialists by clicking here or by giving us a call at 770-929-9033.

New Groundbreaking Treatment Options at Alliance

At Alliance Spine and Pain Centers, we provide life-changing pain relief for chronic pain patients through innovative, individualized treatments. We are proud to share that both Dr. “Nok” Keomahathai and Dr. David J. Rosenfeld recently performed new procedures with advanced technology to help relieve their patients’ pain. 

Dr. “Nok” was the first physician in Georgia to implant the Boston Scientific Wavewriter Alpha Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS). The Alpha IPG battery offers a unified portfolio delivering new personalized and unique therapy options on the most expansive rechargeable and non-rechargeable full-body MRI system with Bluetooth connectivity supporting up to 32 contacts. It also has FAST™ programming technology, which is Boston Scientific’s new and proprietary therapy providing profound paresthesia-free pain relief in minutes. Since this first procedure, Dr. Nok has implanted 4 other systems in the hope of relieving pain to these patients and is optimistic it will help many more.

Dr. Rosenfeld performed the first Sacrix SI Fusion in the state of Georgia. Sacrix is a revolutionary percutaneous posterior sacroiliac fixation technology for the treatment of sacroiliac dysfunction and sacroiliitis. This procedure allows for faster recovery and same-day treatment. Learn more about the Sacrix treatment here.

Also, Dr. Nok and Dr. Rosenfeld are a few selected pain physicians across the United States trained in The Minuteman®  fusion surgery.  It is a minimally invasive, interspinous-interlaminar fusion device intended for the fixation and stabilization of the spine for patients with mild spondylolisthesis (“slippage”) and degenerative disc disease.  This procedure is an outpatient surgery to help reduce pain from these conditions.  Both physicians are excited to offer this option to their patients.

Alliance Spine and Pain Centers is honored to offer our patients the most groundbreaking treatments available and proud of our best-in-class interventional pain management physicians for advancing our state-of-the-art care. If you have any questions about these new procedures, Alliance Spine and Pain is here to help. Reach out to any of our pain care specialists or give us a call at 770-929-9033.
