About the Sacroiliac (SI) Joint
The sacroiliac joints are strong joints (or articulations) between the bottom-most triangular bone of your spine, called the sacrum, and the ilium sections of the pelvis (the sections of the pelvis you put your hands on when you “put your hands on your hips”).
The Function of the Sacroiliac Joint
The function of the sacroiliac joint is both shock absorption (depending on the joint’s possible amount of movement) and torque conversion, to transfer movement in your lower body up to your spine.
The SImmetry Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System is a minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedure for patients with sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction and/or inflammation (sacroiliitis) who have not gained relief from conservative care. The SImmetry System is the only MIS process with the proprietary SImmetry Decorticator® that allows surgeons to prepare the articular region of the joint and insert bone graft into the joint to help facilitate a true bone fusion. The SImmetry procedure enables a more rapid return to regular activities for patients and a greater potential for a successful SI joint fusion.
