Treatment options for SI joint pain include minimally invasive spine surgery
If you’re evaluating your surgical treatment options for SI joint pain after exhausting conservative methods, you may wish to consider the minimally invasive spine surgery offered by Laser Spine Institute. Specifically, you may want to learn more about our minimally invasive SI joint fusion procedure, an option that has helped many patients find a solution for their sacroiliac pain without resorting to a traditional open back surgery.
What happens during surgery?
During a minimally invasive SI joint fusion, one of our board-certified surgeons+ will join the pelvis and the sacrum together through a small incision in the lower back. The surgery is guided by direct visualization equipment that provides the surgeon with real-time images of the surgical site. When successful, this treatment option can help reduce the lower back pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction, as well as the associated stiffness and pain that radiates down through the hips and legs.
Benefits of Laser Spine Institute treatments
While SI joint fusions can be performed as a traditional open back surgery, our minimally invasive approach offers a number of benefits. Most notably, patients experience:
- Shorter recovery time^
- A streamlined outpatient procedure
- Lower postoperative complication rates^
- Muscle-sparing techniques
