Millions of Americans have chronic low back pain, so for orthopedic spine surgeon Theodore Koreckij, M.D., it’s a common complaint among his patients. And if they can’t find relief through more conservative treatment methods, they may be concerned that surgery must be their last resort.
Some patients with chronic low back pain may have another option in the Intracept® Procedure, which Dr. Koreckij offers at Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics. Intracept is an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure that is indicated for patients who have experienced low back pain for more than six months, do not have a spinal instability or scoliosis, but do have modic changes present on their MRI and have not responded to nonsurgical treatments.
