Academic Opinion Leaders in the Field of Spine Surgery & Sacroiliac Joint Experts Attend SI-BONE's National Summit on the Diagnosis of Sacroiliac Pathology
Date:9/16/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SI-BONE, Inc. a San Francisco Bay-area, medical device company, announced the first ever meeting of thought leading spine surgeons to review data and develop a clinical diagnostic process for identification of SI Joint pathology, a frequent cause of low back pain.

Some of the assembled spine experts included Steven Garfin (former president of NASS, Chief of Orthopedics at UCSD), John Glaser (MUSC-Charleston), Arnold Graham-Smith (Jacksonville, FL), Leonard Rudolf (Lebanon, NH), Nick Shamie (UCLA), EJ Donner (Loveland, CO) and Jonathan Sembrano and Charles Ledonio (U of MN), and Mark Reiley (founder of Kyphon).

According to the group, this patient population may be underserved in terms of identifying the actual causes of LBP, and in formulating definitive treatment.

The Summit group reviewed over 80 peer-reviewed publications on SI Joint diagnosis to ascertain what diagnostic methodologies would yield the most practical clinical applications in spine surgery. Currently, according to Mark Reiley, MD, "orth
