Biacuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to treat chronic pain in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. The sacroiliac joint is located where the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) meets the pelvis and can be a source of chronic lower back and/or hip pain.
During the procedure, a small needle is inserted into the skin near the SI joint. A special probe is then passed through the needle, which delivers radiofrequency energy to the joint. The heat generated by the radiofrequency energy causes damage to the nerve tissue, which can provide relief from chronic pain.
Biacuplasty is considered to be a safe and effective treatment option for chronic pain in the sacroiliac joint. It is a relatively new treatment option and is not widely available yet. Biacuplasty is done under fluoroscopic guidance (a type of X-ray) or ultrasound guidance. As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with Biacuplasty and it may not be effective for everyone. It's important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of the procedure with your healthcare provider to determine if it is the right treatment option for you.
It's important to note that Biacuplasty is not the only option for sacroiliac joint pain, and it should be considered as a last resort if other treatments have failed. Your healthcare provider may recommend other treatment options such as physical therapy, medications, or sacroiliac joint injection if appropriate.
