The LinQ™ SI Joint Stabilization System provides SI joint dysfunction patients with a minimally invasive solution to combat pain. After a thorough diagnostic process, physicians can help alleviate, and in many cases, eliminate chronic pain by placing a single LinQ™ allograft into the SI joint. In particular, patients who have undergone previous lumbar spine surgery are at significant risk for SIJ dysfunction based on the changes in forces traversing the SI joint.
This single implant helps patients immediately regain joint stability – and with its patented large graft window and drill-less technology, the LinQ™ SI Joint Stabilization System helps create an ideal environment for long-term fusion.
The entire procedure is done through a small incision on the patient’s back. Patients leave the hospital or surgery center the same day, shortly after surgery and can resume daily living activities within a week or two, depending on how well they are healing and based on their physician’s orders.
