April 28-29, 2023 | Le Meridien Tampa | 601 N Florida Ave., Tampa, FL 33602

The Sacropelvic Evolution Program is designed to bring together orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons who are currently completing a spine fellowship, and residents with an interest in pursuing spine, for a comprehensive overview of the prevalence, diagnosis and treatment of sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction.

Thirteen years ago, SI-BONE pioneered minimally invasive surgery of the SI joint, creating a durable and effective surgical treatment for a problem that had been ignored and often misdiagnosed for decades. Today, the diagnosis and surgical care of the SI joint are hot topics in spine, and SI joint fusion has become one of the most rigorously studied treatments for chronic lower back pain. Recently, the indications for the iFuse Implant System® expanded to include utilization at the base of long construct deformity procedures.

The Sacropelvic Evolution Program will provide a great opportunity for you to join your colleagues, share your experiences, and learn about the latest advancements in sacropelvic diagnosis and treatment, resulting in a full training on both SI joint fusion and long construct support techniques.

We look forward to seeing you in Tampa.



15 to 30% of chronic lower back pain is SI joint related1

Up to 43% of symptomatic post-lumbar fusion patients have SI joint issues2

91% patient satisfaction with the iFuse Implant System®3

24% rate of pelvic fixation failure following adult spinal deformity surgery4
