How will my doctor determine whether I am a candidate for the iFuse Implant System?

If you have been diagnosed with SI joint dysfunction and have failed appropriate non-surgical treatment, your surgeon may determine that you are a candidate for MIS SI joint fusion using the iFuse Implant System. To confirm your diagnosis, your doctor may administer a fluoroscopic or CT guided injection of local anesthetic to your sacroiliac joint and verify that you experience significant pain relief from it. Some doctors repeat the injection to be sure.
