How is the Sacrix Sacroiliac Fixation procedure done?
The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in an outpatient setting. A small incision is made in the skin and the surgeon uses a specialized device to insert two surgical screws to fix (or fuse) the joint, preventing friction, pain and dysfunction. The surgeons at Optimal are specially trained to offer the Sacrix procedure which offers less down time, less bleeding and a smaller incision than traditional fusion options.
Is the Sacrix Sacroiliac Fixation FDA cleared?
Yes! The Sacrix device and procedure are cleared by the FDA for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis.
