What is a Sacroiliac Joint Fusion?


The sacroiliac joints link your pelvis and lower spine. They’re made up of the sacrum — the bony structure above your tailbone and below your lower vertebrae — and the top part (ilium) of your pelvis. There are sacroiliac joints in both the right and left sides of your lower back.

Joint fusion can effectively reduce pain and instability caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction or inflammation (sacroiliitis). Most cases of sacroiliac joint pain can be treated using pain medication, injection treatments, chiropractic manipulation, and/or physical therapy, and surgery is usually not necessary. Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint (also called the SI joint) can produce significant lower back pain, as well as pelvic, groin, and hip pain. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be the result of too much motion, too little motion, or inflammation of the joint.

In a sacroiliac joint fusion, one or both sides of the sacrum is grafted to the ilium to encourage bone growth across the joint. Fusion occurs during the healing process following the surgery, and is achieved using implanted instrumentation and/or a bone graft. The most common method of sacroiliac joint fusion is a minimally-invasive procedure, performed through a small incision in the buttock. Open sacroiliac joint fusion is rarely used due to extensive healing processes and higher complication rates.

For Painful Degenerative Sacroiliitis

Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Fusion procedure allows for fusion and stabilization of the SI joint in eligible patients where appropriate non-surgical treatment has failed. Stabilization of the SI joint may provide immediate relief of pain symptoms.

SI Joint Pain usually presents as pain that radiates into one side of the buttocks, lower back and groin areas. This may generate referred pain into the lower limbs which may be mistaken for sciatica.
Patients may experience difficulty turning over in bed or struggling to put on shoes and socks. Other symptoms may include leg pain while getting in and out of the car or aching on one side of the lower back when driving long distances.

SI Joint Fusion is indicated for conditions such as Painful Degenerative Sacroiliitis and Sacroiliac Joint Disruptions. This surgery may be performed in a less invasive way than traditional Sacroiliac Fusions, allowing for less blood loss and potentially quicker recovery time.
