SIS’s Expertise Sought to Clarify Technical Aspects of Cooled Radiofrequency Neurotomy

Thursday, March 23, 2017  

In February 2017, the Spine Intervention Society (SIS) was asked to address confusion within the payer community about the tissue temperatures achieved by cooled radiofrequency neurotomy.

On March 20, 2017, SIS issued a comment letter citing the evidence in support of cooled radiofrequency neurotomy’s effectiveness and capability of generating lesions by achieving tissue temperatures at or above 80° C. SIS urges payers to correctly classify the procedure as thermal radiofrequency neurotomy. Read the comment letter for further details.
