CAMBER SPINE TECHNOLOGIES REVOLUTIONIZES SACROILIAC SURGERY WITH PROLIX™ SACROILIAC JOINT FUSION SYSTEM
Camber Spine Technologies has partnered with Dr. Joseph DiCicco of Orthopedic Associates of Southwestern Ohio to conduct a post-operative pain study on patients receiving the Prolix™ implant. Patients in the study have undergone pain management therapy for sacroiliac pain over an extended period of time and have now opted for surgical treatment of the sacroiliac joint. The study will compare patient pain scores pre- and post-operatively.
“The recent release of Camber’s Prolix™ has resulted in the first real advancement in SI Fusion surgery options in years. As the first bone graft delivery system to complement the ‘old school screws only’ fix of the past, Prolix has revolutionized this difficult diagnosis. This percutaneous procedure has been well received by my patients, with some saying you’ve changed my life forever, no longer do I need pain pills or even to see my pain management physician! In sacroiliac disease, as the surgeon, it’s all about patient selection. A perfect sacroiliac surgery candidate is one who had excellent initial relief from SI fluoroscopic injection but who slowly, over time, no longer experienced such relief from injection therapy. When I suggest a percutaneous, outpatient surgery to correct a commonly debilitating diagnosis, it often brings tears to my patients’ eyes. Just the option to get long-term relief is a new hope for many of them. I am very pleased with the results so far and will continue to offer this as a permanent fix for my patients!”

The Prolix™ SI Joint Fusion System is used to treat degenerative sacroiliitis and SI joint disruptions in skeletally mature patients.
