Patients with facet joint disorders resulting in life-limiting back pain are often frustrated once they exhaust conservative care and injections. The DenerveX®
System is a potential solution designed to provide these patients with long-term relief through a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime.
What It Is
DenerveX® System is a device that is inserted into the facet joint through a small incision during the procedure. It uses heat and light tissue scraping action on the back of the facet joint to disrupt pain signals. Patients typically recover from the procedure and are back to their everyday activities within 2 weeks.
Outcomes Have Shown a Decrease in Pain 3 Months Following Treatment
Who It Helps
Patients who have experienced facet joint disease with low back pain for more than 3 months without relief are candidates for the DenerveX® System.
Currently the procedure is not available in the United States.
