Patient: Ray Dickerson
What relieved this man's SI joint symptoms due to degenerative sacroiliitis?
- I was spending many hours in physical therapy without experiencing any relief.
- iFuse has returned me to a normal lifestyle.
I suffered with back pain for 30 years before I got help.
"I went to my doctor with persistent low back problems several years after undergoing hip replacement surgery. I was spending many hours in physical therapy without experiencing any relief."
"Due to the severity of the symptoms, my physician recommended sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion after he diagnosed it using CT guided injection, which provided temporary relief. Within three months following the surgery, I experienced significant relief and was able to resume my normal daily activities. In the subsequent months, I continued to improve, and at one year, the iFuse has returned me to a normal lifestyle."
The iFuse System is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. As with all surgical procedures and permanent implants, there are risks and considerations associated with surgery and use of the iFuse Implant. You should discuss these risks and considerations with your physician before deciding if this treatment option is right for you.
