The Most Respected Spine and Pain Surgical Facility

Surgical Firsts

Dr. Richard Kube is the first surgeon in the world to perform a true Minimally Invasive Sacroiliac Joint (SI Joint) Fusion. He recently presented his six-month results from the initial eight patients to hundreds of spine surgeons at the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery’s annual conference. The results demonstrated significant SI joint relief for all 8 patients and most of the surgeries were completed at Dr. Kube’s surgical facility, Prairie SurgiCare, in Peoria, Illinois. Dr. Kube now has over two years follow up on the initial patients and has since then operated on dozens of more patients, all achieving similar outcomes. He first performed the minimally invasive approach to SI Joint fusion in May, 2011. Since then hundreds of patients from throughout the Midwest have sought out Dr. Kube to have the procedure.
