Sacroiliac Joint Fusion (SI) is a minimally invasive surgery used to treat sacroiliac joint dysfunctions. The goal of the surgery is to completely eliminate pain-causing movement at the Sacroiliac joint.
Sacroiliac joint fusion is appropriate for patients who experience SI joint pain and/or dysfunction, and when more conservative measures have been unsuccessful. A computerized tomography (CT) scan of the pelvis and diagnostic SI blocks may be used to determine the appropriate course of action.
How is the surgery performed?
What is the recovery?
The patient should expect to remain hospitalized and under supervision for 24 to 48 hours. The patient should remain non-weight bearing on the side of the surgery for 2 weeks after hospitalization. Two weeks post-surgery, the patient should have a significant, if not complete, resolution of pain.
