Dr. Barcohana Completes the Valley's FIRST Intracept Procedure!

Dr. Babak Barcohana was the FIRST doctor in the Valley to offer and complete an Intracept® Procedure! The surgery was completed on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at The Center for Orthopedic Surgery (COSI).

Intracept is a new minimally invasive, outpatient procedure for patients with chronic vertebrogenic pain in the lumbar spine. The Intracept Procedure is similar to kyphoplasty in terms of approach, but with subtle nuance to gain access to the base of the basivertebral nerve for ablation.
