There are a number of treatments for chronic low back pain (CLBP), and one of the newest treatment types is Intracept® Procedure. It is considered minimally invasive and can be done as an outpatient operation as it takes between an hour and an hour and a half to complete. It uses radiofrequency energy to disrupt pain signals. The procedure has been through a number of clinical studies, including some that lasted five years. The results have largely shown to be successful over the long-term to stop or minimize the pain. The first patient to experience it, the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine had chronic pain for at least six months without adequate response to other types of treatment for the pain. They had symptoms of degenerative endplate changes, and this treatment was considered a good potential solution.
