Attention! Due to the coronavirus outbreak, SDSPA will NOT be holding a dinner meeting for May 2020. However, a Virtual Educational meeting is available for interested members. See details below:

Dear SD PA Society,

I hope this email finds you all healthy and doing well!  It may be awhile before we can physically get together for an educational dinner, so I thought, why don’t we all grab a beverage and listen to a presentation in the comfort of our own homes?!    (See attached invitation.)

This will be an informal, interactive presentation by Danielle Ruggiero, RPA-C*, covering:

  • Prevalence of SI Joint Pain
  • Protocol for SI Joint Diagnosis
  • Treatment Options: Conservative and Surgical
  • Quick Review of Clinical Studies utilizing the iFuse implant for SI joint Fusion Surgery

In addition, I’ll try to have one of our surgeons jump on towards the end to answer any additional questions you may have regarding the procedure.  Feel free to forward this to any colleagues you feel would be interested in joining us.

Please RSVP with me via email or text to receive a Zoom Invite (  858.220.6118)

I look forward to seeing you!


Bethann Barry

SI-BONE Territory Manager
