We introduce SIMEG members who offer help (to be continued)
I am a partner at Semmes Murphey Clinic and Associate professor of neurosurgery at University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center. I practice at Semmes Murphey Clinic in Oxford, MS. We are a large neurosurgery practice based out of Memphis that has been in existence for over 100 years. We offer all neurosurgical subspecialties and my niche is the SIJ and minimally invasive spine surgery.
I base my care for SIJ patients on the original Borgess SIJ algorithm which was developed by Dr. Bruce Dall, Dr. Sonia Eden, and Dr. Hunter Brumblay.
In 2009, we established the first Sacroiliac Joint Center in Japan and have been providing both conservative and surgical treatment. We have performed anterior sacroiliac arthrodesis and treated many severe cases; since 2016, we have performed posterior method.
We have excellent physical therapists and pain physicians and are committed to the development of conservative therapies.
We provide our patients with the kind of treatment that we would like to be treated with. Surgery is performed as a last resort and we are most interested in preserving sacroiliac joint function as much as possible with conservative therapy.
