Joint fusions/ arthrodesis are traditionally defined as surgical procedures to permanently hold a joint in a fixed position by fusing together the two bones which make up a joint.

Join us for a lively debate on the merits of  treating SIJ pain and dysfunction using technologies which either create a traditional intra-articular or extra-articular boney joint fusion vs technologies which are based on fixation of an implant to the sacrum and to the ilium leading to immobilization of the SI joint.
