UT Southwestern adds minimally invasive spine procedure


The UT Southwestern Spine Center in Dallas began offering the Intracept spine procedure for lower back pain, according to a Sept. 30 news release. 

G. Sunny Sharma, MD, and Ankit Patel, MD, began performing the procedure earlier in 2022, UT Southwestern said. Intracept is the only FDA-approved treatment for vertebrogenic low back pain and is a radiofrequency nerve ablation.

Bradenton, Fla.-based Coastal Orthopedics also began implementing Intracept earlier in 2022.
