Treating Sacroiliac Joint Disruptions - A Patient's Story | SI-BONE

Sheri

What relieved this woman's SI joint symptoms due to degenerative sacroiliitis?

Sheri's Story

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 disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis.

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.

The iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis. This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months. There are potential risks associated with the iFuse Implant System. It may not be appropriate for all patients and all patients may not benefit.
