Sacroiliac Joint Fusion
Find Relief for Your Chronic Lower Back Pain with Sacroiliac Joint Fusion
The sacroiliac (SI) joint, which is located in the pelvis, links the iliac bone (pelvis) to the sacrum (lowest part of the spine above the tailbone). The SI joint transfers weight and forces between your upper body and legs. When bony surfaces or ligaments are damaged due to trauma or any other condition, sacroiliac or SI joint fusion can treat the pain when other nonsurgical methods are unresponsive.
Who needs SI Joint Fusion?
How is SI Joint Fusion Surgery Performed?
Sacroiliac joint fusion is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis, with most patients able to return to their normal activities within a few weeks. During the procedure, our interventional pain physicians will use advanced imaging technology to guide the placement of screws to fuse the joint, reducing pain and restoring function.
The procedure generally takes 45 minutes to 60 minutes to complete. It is performed in our outpatient Ambulatory Surgical Center and you go home the same day.
