iO-Core™ is an outpatient procedure performed in a surgical procedure room, surgical center, or hospital setting. From start to finish, the whole procedure takes about 60 minutes. You will be under general sedation during the treatment process.

After treatment, patients are often released within a few hours. Upon discharge for recovery, you may be given pain medications and instructions to rest. Within a few days after the iO-Core™ procedure, many patients report significantly reduced pain and restoration in joint mobility at the treatment site. Many patients report pain relief within weeks following surgery.
