Sacroiliac Joint Fusion - Houston Spine Doctor - Dr. Navin Subramanian

Sacro-Iliac Joint Fusion

Sacro-Iliac Joint Fusion

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is a significant cause of low back pain. The SI joint can be the main source of pain in 15-30% of patients with chronic low back pain patients. In addition, the SI joint is a common pain generator in patients who have had a lumbar fusion. SI joint fusion is a minimally invasive surgical SI joint treatment option that provides stabilization and fusion of the SI joint for some causes of SI joint pain. This is accomplished by inserting titanium implants across the joint to maximize post-surgical stability and weight bearing capacity. The procedure is done through a small incision and can be performed as an outpatient.

This treatment is an outpatient procedure. Dr. Subramanian typically encourages patients to walk the day following surgery as early movement indicates a quicker recovery.
