SI fusion, or sacroiliac joint fusion, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to address pain and instability in the sacroiliac joint. This procedure is often recommended for individuals experiencing chronic lower back pain originating from the sacroiliac joint, a common source of discomfort. The decision to undergo SI fusion is based on factors such as the severity of symptoms, response to conservative treatments, and the recommendation of a healthcare provider.


During SI fusion, implants are utilized to stabilize the sacroiliac joint and promote fusion between the sacrum and ilium. This fusion helps alleviate pain and restore stability in the joint, allowing for improved function and reduced discomfort.

The surgeon uses fluoroscopy guidance to accurately place implants across the sacroiliac joint, ensuring optimal alignment and fusion. This real-time imaging technique aids in precise placement of the implants, leading to successful fusion and long-term pain relief.

One significant advantage of SI fusion is the potential for lasting pain reduction and improved joint function. By stabilizing the sacroiliac joint through fusion, individuals can experience enhanced mobility and quality of life.


To perform SI fusion, the patient is positioned on the operating table, and anesthesia is administered for comfort. A small incision is made near the sacroiliac joint, allowing access to the joint for implant placement.

Using fluoroscopy guidance, specialized implants are inserted across the sacroiliac joint to stabilize and fuse the joint. The surgeon carefully positions the implants to ensure proper alignment and fusion, promoting long-term joint stability.

The entire procedure is conducted with precision to achieve optimal outcomes and restore function in the sacroiliac joint. Following the procedure, the incision is closed, and the patient is monitored before being discharged.


Patients who undergo SI fusion typically experience reduced pain and improved joint stability following the procedure. While some individuals may require a short period of rest, many can resume normal activities soon after surgery. It is essential to follow post-operative instructions provided by the healthcare team to support proper healing and maximize the benefits of SI fusion.
