When should I consider surgery?

When should I consider surgery?

– Dr. Michael R. Moore is a retired orthopedic spine surgeon with over 30 years experience in treating sacroiliac joint problems.
If SI joint pain is a minor issue in your life, you’re likely not a candidate for surgery. If frequent or sustained symptoms are preventing you from living life the way you want to – you can’t play with your children or grandchildren, can’t walk up and down stairs, or can’t sleep through the night, for example — you could be a candidate for surgical fusion.

The SI joint fusion operation permanently eliminates motion in the joint which can significantly improve or completely eliminate pain.
