Evidence-based recommendations on peripheral nerve-field stimulation for chronic low back pain. This involves implanting electrodes in the back, connected to a neurostimulator under the skin to mask the back pain by modulating the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Evidence-based recommendations on percutaneous intradiscal radiofrequency treatment of the intervertebral disc nucleus for low back pain. This involves relieving low back pain by delivering heat energy to the damaged disc.
Evidence-based recommendations on transaxial interbody lumbosacral fusion for low back pain in adults. This involves removing a damaged disc through a small cut at the base of the spine, and replacing it with an artificial implant.
Evidence-based recommendations on lateral interbody fusion in the lumbar spine for low back pain in adults. This involves removing the damaged disc and fixing parts of the spine together, to relieve pain.
