      Note: Names and details are provided by the listed physician for your information only. Decisions regarding choice of physician and treatment are a patient’s responsibility, as is all communication and interaction provided by the listed physician(s) for your information only. Physicians listed on the Physician Locator pay no fee for inclusion. Physicians listed have a business relationship with Relievant which includes one or more of the following: purchase of product, provide consulting services to and/or be a party to a co-marketing agreement. Relievant makes no representations or warranties regarding, and is not responsible for, the competencies or skill level of any of the physicians listed on the Physician Locator or the quality of their procedural outcomes.
      As of 2024, the following criteria will govern listing on the Physician Locator:

      • Successfully completed their initial Intracept Procedure training.
      • Performed at least 5 successful Intracept Procedures within the preceding 6 months so as to demonstrate a commensurate level of skill, competence, and familiarity with the Intracept Procedure. A procedure with patient complaints does not satisfy this criteria.
      • To be added back to the Physician Locator, a physician must perform at least 5 successful Intracept Procedures within the preceding 6 months.
      • Additionally, Relievant Physician Faculty that train and educate their peers at Relievant-sponsored programs meet eligibility requirements.

      In addition, a small percentage of providers may qualify to be designated as an Intracept Procedure Center of Excellence.
      The Intracept Procedure Center of Excellence (COE) Program is designed to highlight chronic low back pain (CLBP) physicians who specialize in the Intracept Procedure and consistently strive to deliver excellent patient outcomes and experiences. Physicians included in the COE Program have achieved a high level of training and experience with the Intracept Procedure and demonstrate a commitment to maintaining a high level of proficiency in performing the Procedure.
      To qualify for our Intracept COE designation, a physician must meet the following additional criteria:

      1. Participate in the 12-month period prior to submission for designation or re-designation in a minimum of:
        • Two Boston Scientific Professional Education-led educational events for initial designation, and
        • One Boston Scientific Professional Education-led education event per year for re-designation.
      2. Complete a minimum of 30 Intracept cases in the 6-month period prior to submission for designation and maintain at least 3 cases per month average annually (i.e., 36 total annual cases) for re-designation.
      3. Attest to tracking patient outcomes.
      4. Have an active website presence which includes education information pertaining to Intracept.
      5. Complete a minimum of one patient-facing or referring physician education activity in the 12-month period prior to submission for designation.
      6. Participate in a minimum of two Program Reviews per year to review patient outcomes, latest clinical data, and discuss best practices.

      Depending on the month of initial designation, COE physicians will be required to complete annual re-designation requirements to obtain re-designation for the following year:

      • If designated between January-June, physician is redesignated the following June.
      • If designated between July-December, physician is redesignated the following December/January.

      Boston Scientific may remove a physician from the Physician Locator at any time and without notice should Boston Scientific conclude that any of the following has occurred: (i) failure to satisfy the criteria to qualify for listing; (ii) discontinuing performing the Intracept Procedure with sufficient frequency to demonstrate a high degree of skill and competency; (iii) any alleged or suspected violation of a federal or state law governing healthcare professionals and/or the practice of medicine; and/or (iv) any action related to a physician’s professional license, or the actual revocation of a license.

      Indications for Use: The Intracept™ Procedure is indicated for patients who have had chronic low back pain for at least six months, who have tried conservative care for at least six months, and whose MRI shows features consistent with Modic changes – indicating damage at the vertebral endplates has led to inflammation. Not every patient who meets these criteria is a candidate for the Intracept Procedure, however – in fact, there are specific characteristics indicating a patient should not be considered for the procedure.

      Contraindications include being pregnant, having weakened cardiac or pulmonary function, having an implanted electronic medical device in the body (such as a pacemaker or defibrillator), being diagnosed with a systemic or local infection, or having an anatomy that could be damaged unintentionally while ablating the basivertebral nerve (based on your physician’s clinical review). The Intracept Procedure is also contraindicated in patients who are skeletally immature – which generally means individuals under the age of 18 are not candidates. There are also certain risks and precautions regarding the procedure which you should be aware of before proceeding. Talk with your doctor about what indicates, and contraindicates, certain patients for the Intracept Procedure – as well as the risks and precautions for the procedure.
