A local neurosurgeon, Dr. Sven Hochheimer, recently performed Intracept procedure, in which he blocked pain signals being transmitted from the basivetebral nerve in the lower back.

It was performed in early October at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, and the patient has reported about 85% relief from pain. He is the only surgeon in Wyoming to have performed this procedure.
