Sacroiliac Fusion

Sacroiliac Fusion

Sacroiliac Fusion

Sacroiliac fusion is a minimally invasive surgery that fuses the iliac bone to the sacrum to completely eliminate the sacroiliac joint movement. It is performed for various conditions like spinal instability, trauma, cancer, or infection. The procedure uses implanted screws and rods and also bone grafts across the joint. This surgery had been developed in recent years to improve pain and disability and reduce the recovery time.

Sacroiliac joint fusion is recommended only if non-surgical treatments are ineffective in patients. In most cases, non-surgical treatments are tried for several weeks to months before the surgery is advised. Post-surgery, recovery may include a combination of physical therapy, pain medications, and at-home treatments. A pelvic brace is also prescribed to patients to stabilize the pelvis and reduce painful movement while healing. The recovery period usually lasts for 3 to 6 months. 

At UMMC, we have well-versed doctors and surgeons specially trained to treat patients with joint pain issues. We provide the best treatment based on the diagnosis and medical history of the patient.
