SI - JOINT FUSION

Sacroiliac Joint General Overview

The sacroiliac joint is a low-motion joint that connects the hip bones to either side of the sacrum, acting primarily as a shock-absorber between the lower body and torso. This joint can also be thought of as the point where the base of the spine connects to the pelvis. The sacroiliac joint is a combination of a synovial joint and the sacroiliac ligaments.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Studies show that up to 25% of chronic low back pain is sacroiliac joint in origin and that the diagnosis of sacroiliac joint disease is frequently overlooked by physicians. The iFuse Implant™, is a cost-effective and minimally invasive sacroiliac implant system for SI joint dysfunction caused by SI joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. SI joint treatment using the patented triangular design of the iFuse Implant™, available since 2009, has produced unparalleled clinical results. The iFuse Implant has multiple clinical studies demonstrating that treatment improved pain, patient function, and quality of life. Dr. Philip Ploska is one of the leading orthopedic surgeons in the country performing SI joint fusion procedures.
