What is the SI Joint?

The SI joint is responsible for 25% of all low back pain, yet is rarely evaluated.  The sacroiliac (SI) joint is a significant cause of low back pain. Publications and clinical research show the SI joint as a pain generator in up to 25% of low back pain and up to 43% of post-lumbar and lumbosacral fusion patients.1,2 The iFuse device manufactured by SIBONE ®, Inc., is a minimally invasive surgical SI joint treatment option available to provide stabilization and fusion of the SI joint for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. This is accomplished by inserting small titanium implants across the joint to maximize post-surgical stability and weight bearing capacity. The procedure is done through a small incision and takes about an hour. As with all surgical procedures and permanent implants, there are risks and considerations associated with surgery and use of the iFuse Implant.
