What is sacroiliac joint fusion, and how is it performed?
A sacroiliac joint fusion, also known as an SI Fusion, is a minimally invasive procedure used to stabilize the sacroiliac joint by using small bone implants and screws to fixate the joint in place. This fixation alleviates the pain caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
This is a newer procedure and the Board Certified Spine Surgeons at OrthoNeuro have performed thousands of these procedures and have helped countless patients return to an active and healthy life after an SI joint fusion.
At OrthoNeuro, an SI joint fusion may be performed as an inpatient or outpatient procedure based on your Spine Surgeon’s recommendation. If the procedure is performed on an inpatient basis, the hospital stay is usually only 1-2 days.
During a SI joint fusion procedure:
After surgery, the bone graft fuses with existing bone to form a solid joint that no longer causes pain.
Using our advanced minimally invasive techniques, there is very little surgical trauma and you are able to recover and return to normal activities shortly after surgery.
If you have been considering an SI joint fusion, schedule an appointment with one of our Board Certified Spine Specialists at one of our 7 convenient locations throughout Greater Columbus.
We will evaluate your unique lifestyle and goals to determine which type of surgery is best for you.

“I recently had surgery on my lower back. I had heard that such surgery would result in pain and cause me difficulties in doing ordinary daily tasks but, I experienced no pain and was able to do normal activities at home and at church. Also, being a bee keeper, I was able to work the hives and extract the honey from most of the hives”
