Are you searching for SI joint pain surgery? Read this guide from the spine experts at Laser Spine Institute Tampa
SI joint pain can be debilitating. If you have been diagnosed with this condition, you may be experiencing some of the side effects of these symptoms, such as difficulty participating in your hobbies or completing daily chores. When conservative treatment doesn’t relieve your pain, SI joint pain surgery may be your only option to regain your normal quality of life.
Often, a fusion surgery is recommended to treat SI joint pain. While the idea of a spinal fusion may make you apprehensive, you can have peace of mind knowing that Laser Spine Institute offers a safer and effective alternative to traditional open back fusion with our minimally invasive spine surgery.^ Take a moment to review what is involved in our surgeries and contact us with any questions.
Methods of a minimally invasive SI joint pain surgery
Unlike traditional open back surgery that requires a large incision and cuts through the muscles surrounding the spine, our minimally invasive spine surgery consists of a smaller incision and uses muscle-sparing techniques to protect the integrity of the core muscles. Because of these differences, our minimally invasive procedures offer patients a shorter recovery time^ and lower risk of complication compared to traditional open back surgery.
In order to treat the SI joint, our surgery fuses the pelvis to the sacrum using a bone graft and possibly other surgical implants. Once this is complete, patients can begin their postsurgical recovery period.
Benefits of choosing Laser Spine Institute for spine surgery
In addition to the shorter recovery time^ and the lower risk of complication associated with our minimally invasive spine surgery, our procedures also offer the following benefits:
- Lower risk of infection^
- Allow patients to be up and walking within hours after surgery^
- Patient satisfaction score of 98^
