Although the sacroiliac joint (SI) has a limited range of motion, this complex joint acts as a shock absorber between your upper body and your legs. The SI joint connects your hip bones to the sacrum, a triangular bone that sits between your lumbar spine and your tailbone. Due to trauma or wear and tear over time, instability of the SI joint can begin to cause you to experience painful symptoms.
At Spine Institute of North America, renowned leaders in spinal procedures may recommend the CornerLoc® SI Joint Fusion System. This minimally invasive procedure is designed to stabilize the SI joint and potentially prepare it for SI Joint Fusion.
What Is the CornerLoc® SI Procedure?
If you are suffering from sacroiliac joint pain and are looking at the possibility of joint fusion surgery, the CornerLoc® SI Joint Fusion procedure offers a minimally invasive alternative to relieve painful symptoms and treat instability.
The CornerLoc® SI Joint Fusion System uses a state-of-the-art cortical bone graft as well as a DBM sponge derived from bone that can be compressed into a void where it then carefully expands. The procedure is simple, effective and safe.
