Sacroiliac Joint Fusion-Fixation-Stabilization
Sacroiliac joint fusion is performed to stabilize a dysfunctional joint in the pelvic region. The procedure helps alleviate pain when conservative methods fail to provide relief. Dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint can cause pain in the lower back, groin or leg on the affected side. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is treated initially with conservative measures such as physical therapy, medications, or injections. Surgery is recommended if conservative treatment does not relieve the symptoms.
