The sacroiliac (SI) joint can be the source of many low back pain symptoms, including pain from the low back down through the lower buttocks and upper legs, and debilitation which affect patients’ ability to work and/or perform activities of daily living. This happens when the SI joint becomes damaged or injured, (e.g., after an injury or pregnancy).
The SI joint is often overlooked as a source of problems, and traditional surgical approaches to address the SI joint have yielded marginal results. However, now there are comprehensive diagnostic techniques available and an option called the iFuse Implant System that may help using a minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approach to fuse the SI joint.
