The Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine announced that they are among the first in our area to offer an innovative approach to provide relief for patients suffering from chronic low back pain (CLBP). The treatment known as Intracept® Procedure is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure which targets a nerve located in the bones of the spine (vertebrae). During the procedure, recently performed at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, Dr. Fabian Ramos advanced a specialized probe into the vertebrae and used radiofrequency energy (heat) to disable the nerve, rendering it unable to transmit pain signals.

The Intracept Procedure takes approximately 60-90 minutes and is implant-free. It is supported by multiple clinical studies, including two Level I randomized controlled trials and five-year data showing patient outcomes last long-term. “We are excited to be able to offer this treatment option for patients who suffer from chronic low back pain and look forward to continued close collaboration with Lakewood Ranch Medical Center” said Dr. Fabian Ramos, Interventional Pain Specialist, and Medical Director at the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine.

The indicated patient for the Intracept Procedure has chronic low back pain of at least six months duration, has not responded to at least six months of conservative care, and presents with degenerative endplate changes consistent with Type 1 or Type 2 Modic changes at L3 through S1 on an MRI. To find out if you are a candidate for Intracept, call the Ramos Center at 941-708-9555 or visit their website for more information, RamosCenter.com.
