ISIS Comments on the Washington State Health Care Authority Draft Report on Facet Neurotomy

Friday, January 24, 2014  
On December 19, 2013, the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) released for public comment a draft evidence report on facet neurotomy. According to the HCA’s website, "there are significant questions related to the diagnosis and treatment of facet joint pain including if it is safe, effective and cost-effective and the most effective means of identifying patients who may benefit.” ISIS submitted comments to the HCA on Friday, January 17, 2014, encouraging the Washington HCA to focus on the evidence and the proper application of ISIS guidelines as the standard for the performance of medial branch blocks, third occipital nerve blocks, and thermal radiofrequency neurotomy.
The ISIS comment letter is available here.
