Do You See Patients With Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain?
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.
SI Joint Diagnosis - A Comprehensive Approach
The iFuse Implant System® is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis. This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months. Clinical studies have demonstrated that treatment with the iFuse Implant System improved pain, patient function, and quality of life. There are potential risks associated with the iFuse Implant System. It may not be appropriate for all patients and all patients may not benefit. For information about the risks, click here.
