Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Fusion

An SI joint fusion is performed to stabilize the sacroiliac joint to relieve pain and symptoms caused by sacroiliac joint disruptions or degenerative sacroiliitis.

The iFuse® Implant System

A minimally invasive surgical procedure performed as an alternative to a traditional open SI joint fusion. During the procedure, three titanium implants are inserted across the SI joint to stabilize and fuse it.

Who can benefit from an iFuse® procedure?

Trauma to the SI joint from:

  • Fall on the buttock
  • Rear end motor vehicle accident
  • Heavy lifting
  • Seronegative spondyloarthropathies
  • Infection
  • Adjacent segment degeneration, post spinal fusion

Benefits of an iFuse® procedure:

  • Minimally invasive procedure replaces older traditional open SI joint fusion
  • Minimal incision size and less tendon irritation
  • Quicker healing
  • Less time in the hospital

The iFuse® Implant System

When is an iFuse® procedure recommended? iFuse® is recommended for treatment once all other options have been exhausted. This will include; rest, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and sacroiliac joint injections.
