The LinQ™ surgery may be performed in a less invasive way than traditional Sacroiliac Fusions, allowing for less blood loss and potentially quicker recovery time.

The expert pain management specialists at Florida Pain Relief Centers are dedicated to providing the latest in state-of-the-art treatment options to ensure the most effective pain relief plan for each individual patient. And now, FPRC is proud to announce another new and innovative procedure: The LinQ™ - SI Joint Fusion System by PainTEQ.

The LinQ™ Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System allows for fusion and stabilization of the SI joint in eligible patients where appropriate non-surgical treatment has failed. Stabilization of the SI joint may provide immediate relief of pain symptoms.

The LinQ™ surgery may be performed in a less invasive way than traditional Sacroiliac Fusions, allowing for less blood loss and potentially quicker recovery time. The system is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions including Degenerative Sacroiliac and Sacroiliac Joint Disruptions.

SYMPTOMS OF SI JOINT PAIN:

  • Pain located on one side of the lower back
  • Pain radiating into the buttocks, lower back and groin
  • Referred pain into the lower limbs which may be mistaken for sciatica
  • Difficulty turning over in bed, struggling to put on shoes and socks, leg pain while getting in and out of the car
  • Stiffness in the lower back when getting up after sitting for long periods and when getting up from bed
  • Aching on one side of the lower back when driving long distances

SACRAL DISRUPTION AND DEGENERATIVE SACROILIITIS

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is located in the lower portion of the body, between the sacrum and the pelvis. The sacroiliac joint is designed to act as a shock absorber for the upper extremities. This joint, like any other joint, may become injured or degenerative over time. If these changes occur, they may cause SI Joint pain.

SACROILIAC JOINT PAIN

The sacroiliac (SI) joint pain may be caused by a variety of different factors. Two possible causes of SI Joint pain are Degenerative Sacroiliitis and Sacral Disruption. These may be caused through atraumatic (degenerative changes over time) or traumatic (lift, fall, automobile accident) occurrences.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OPTIONS

The sacroiliac (SI) joint pain can potentially be difficult to diagnose as it may mimic disc or lower back pain. However, there are a variety of tests that can be performed to confirm that the SI Joint is indeed the pain generator.

A heavily preferred diagnostic tool used to identify whether the SI Joint is the cause of your low back symptoms is an SI Joint injection with a local anesthetic. If your pain decreases after this diagnostic injection, your surgeon may determine that the SI Joint is the pain generator.

SYMPTOMS OF SI JOINT PAIN:

  • Degenerative Sacroiliitis
  • Sacral Disruption
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Post-traumatic SI Joint Disruption
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Structural Pelvic Asymmetry
  • Tumor (Pituitary of Metastatic)
  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Degenerative Osteoarthritis
  • Ligamentous Laxity (Pregnancy)
  • Trauma
  • Adjacent Segment Disease

POTENTIAL PATIENT CANDIDATES

  • Failed previous treatments
  • Extreme chronic pain
  • Trauma
  • Postpartum
  • Adjacent Segment Disease
  • Motivated and capable of reasonable post-surgical expectations
  • Failed required diagnostic exams (provocative testing and Fluoroscopic SI Injection)

HERE’S WHY REFERRING PHYSICIANS RECOMMEND THE LINQ™ POSTERIOR SI JOINT FUSION PROCEDURE FOR THEIR PATIENTS:

  • Minimally invasive
  • No metal implanted
  • Short Procedure Time
