"I am so grateful that I found iFuse and had access to wonderful care that helped me."

Background

In 2009, Catherine began experiencing SI joint pain on both sides. In the summer of 2010, Catherine's SI joint pain became increasingly worse even though she was receiving regular SI joint injections every three months. The injections helped for the first few months but as they became less effective, Catherine would feel pain, numbness, and tingling from her buttocks all the way down to her legs.

Update

After Catherine’s iFuse procedures in 2013, she began feeling better and was able to regain many of the activities that she lost due to her discomfort. She remains highly positive, while maintaining her can-do attitude. Catherine wants others to know that there is hope for those who suffer with SI joint disruption and not to give up.
