Recent Research

Dr. Redmond contributes to impressive new research

In a new medical research study published by Dove Medical Press on July 13, 2016, Dr. Andy Redmond of Precision Spine Care in Tyler, Texas and other renowned medical professionals aimed to determine the patient outcomes of Sacroiliac joint fusion (SIJF) three or more years after surgery. The research showed that in "intermediate- to long-term follow-up, minimally invasive transiliac SIJF was associated with improved pain, low disability scores, and improved ability to perform activities of daily living."
