Don’t let lower back pain dictate your life

Different from other nerves in the body that regenerate, the BVN has not shown an ability to grow back as a pain-transmitting nerve. We have found that by heating the basivertebral nerve with a radiofrequency probe, we can stop it from sending pain signals to the brain.

Intercept your pain with Intracept®

The Intracept Procedure is a same-day procedure performed in an outpatient surgery center and requires minimal recovery steps. Patients are under anesthesia, and the procedure generally lasts an hour. 

Unlike many major surgeries, the procedure is implant-free, so it won’t interfere with any spinal treatments needed in the future. It also preserves the overall structure of your spine.

Chronic back pain has met its match

The Intracept® Procedure offers a new way to significantly reduce or eliminate chronic low back pain. This groundbreaking technique is:

Icon Implant

Implant free

Icon Hour

A single, one-hour procedure

Icon Smiling

Proven to relieve pain for 5+ years

Icon Recovery

Minimally invasive for an easy recovery

Why the Intracept Procedure works

Our procedure for chronic low back pain is backed by strong scientific evidence, and most importantly, patients whose lives have been restored.


Patients experienced significant improvements in function and pain three months post-procedure and have sustained these results for more than five years after a single treatment. More than one-third of patients reported being pain-free on their personal pain scale.


Two Level I randomized controlled trials (RCTs) demonstrate that the Intracept Procedure is a more effective treatment compared to both a sham-control procedure and to non-surgical standard care.


Clinical studies have demonstrated consistent results that are reproducible in a typical community spine practice.


With a strong safety profile, less than 0.2% of patients reported a serious device or procedure-related complication following the procedure.
