Background

Sheri was treated with physical therapy and lumbar injections for six years. Everything changed for her in February 2012 when her pain physician learned of the iFuse Implant System® as an option for sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis.

Update

A year after her left SI joint was treated with the iFuse, Sheri’s surgeon recommended the iFuse procedure for her right SI joint. In March 2013, Sheri followed her doctor’s advice and underwent the iFuse procedure on her right SI joint. She had a routine recovery and began feeling the benefits almost immediately. Today, Sheri no longer requires cortisone injections and continues to exercise on her own. She is back to dancing, gardening, and enjoying all of the things she loves to do with her family.

This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months. The iFuse Implant System is also intended for sacroiliac fusion to augment stabilization and immobilization of the sacroiliac joint in skeletally mature patients undergoing sacropelvic fixation as part of a lumbar or thoracolumbar fusion. As well, the iFuse Implant system is intended for sacroiliac fusion in acute, non-acute, and non-traumatic fractures involving the sacroiliac joint. In addition, the iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion in acute, non-acute, and non-traumatic fractures involving the sacroiliac joint.
