Sacroiliac fusion involves the use of implanted screws or rods, as well as a possible bone graft across the joint. Minimally-invasive procedures have been developed in recent years that improve outcomes in pain and disability, and reduce recovery time - hip pain.

Fusion of the joint really doesn't cause many problems because the joint only moves a tiny bit normally. Eliminating that motion really doesn't change much except to eliminate pain, which comes from excess motion.

There are two surgical systems used for sacroiliac joint fusion, which include the implants that fuse the joint as well as other tools needed to perform the surgery. All minimally-invasive sacroiliac joint fusion procedures consist of the following Under general anesthesia, a small incision is made over the lower back and muscles are gently moved to the side - chronic pain.

Minimally invasive sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion is indicated for low back pain from the SI joint that is due to degenerative sacroiliitis and/or sacroiliac joint disruption. This technique is safe and effective in relieving pain uncontrolled by nonoperative management. There is some controversy, but there continues to be increasing evidence of effectiveness.
