Camber Spine Technologies Revolutionizes Sacroiliac Surgery With Prolix™ Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System

WAYNE, Pa., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Camber Spine Technologies has partnered with Dr. Joseph DiCicco of Orthopedic Trauma 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.

Joseph DiCicco, DO, FAOAO, of
Orthopedic Trauma Associates of
Southwestern Ohio, is board
certified by the American
Osteopathic Association,
specializing in orthopedic trauma
and reconstructive surgery. As a
trauma consultant and product
designer he has been involved in
the development of multiple
trauma and fracture-care devices
over the last several years. Dr.
DiCicco has also written numerous
journal articles and book chapters
on trauma and fracture care, and
has lectured on a variety of trauma
topics across the country and
throughout the world.


“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 compliment 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!”
