Avoid Back Surgery with Regenexx
Typical treatment protocols for patients suffering from injury to the sacroiliac (SI) joints include high-dose steroid injections that come with a number of negative side effects and SI fusion surgery that effectively removes the layer of shock-absorption between the hip and lumbar spine leading to significantly increased stress on those areas and in many cases further injury over time. One study showed that after five years 16.5% of patients who had a lower back fusion needed an additional surgery to correct damage caused by the fusion while after 10 years, roughly 1/3 of patients needed another surgery. Additional in another study, 55% of patients were still taking narcotics two years after the surgical fusion.
During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage around the SI joint to promote healing of the injured joint. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for opioid pain medications or time off of work.
