Sacroiliac Joint Fusion: Video

Dr Nazer Qureshi Scrubs SmallNazer Qureshi MD

Surgery for sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction is rarely used, and it’s usually only considered if you’ve tried all other non-surgical treatments for SI joint pain, such as exercise, physical therapy, and medications, and you haven’t found pain relief.

In this video Dr. Qureshi discusses the surgical option for treatment of SI Joint problems.

 

Even though the sacroiliac joint has been identified as a possible pain generator and is associated with low back and leg pain for more than a century. The sacroiliac join pain has historically been underdiagnosed and certainly under treated

The diagnosis of SIJ dysfunction has evolved with the advent of diagnostic technical advancements. Only if nonsurgical modalities fail then surgery may be the next option in the form of sacroiliac joint fusion. For this patient requires specific clinical examination as well as sacroiliac joint injections.
