Accurately diagnosing sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be difficult because the symptoms mimic other common conditions, including other mechanical back pain conditions like facet syndrome as well as other lumbar spine conditions including disc herniation and radiculopathy (pain along the sciatic nerve that radiates down the leg).
SImmetry is a minimally invasive surgical solution designed for patients with unresolved symptoms of sacroiliac (SI) Joint dysfunction that have not responded to conservative non-surgical therapies.
For many patients, the SImmetry System offers significant potential for relief. The minimally invasive SImmetry procedure is built on the proven orthopedic principles of fusion: joint preparation, bone grafting, and fixation. The procedure normally takes an hour or less to complete, and most SImmetry patients are able to return home within a day or two.
