SI Joint Fusion With The iFuse Implant System®

The procedure, used by Dr. McNally is new, minimally invasive, and life-changing. The iFuse Implant System, developed by SI-Bone, Inc., of San Jose, California. In October 2016, the president of SI-Bone, as well as a few other surgeons went in front of HCSC/Blue Cross/Blue Shield Administration and medical doctors and presented data on iFuse and the outcomes they had seen over the past eight years.

I definitely do not have either enough words or the right words to tell you how much I love Suburban Orthopedics. I have known Dr. Freedberg forever and he has become a very dear friend. Dr. McNally and all of the therapists have been supportive and loving through everything I have gone through. You cannot go wrong becoming involved with this group of people. The staff is warm and caring and can’t help enough. If you do have concerns the office staff is ready and willing to listen and act on your behalf. I do not think that I have ever encountered a more well-rounded community who is totally dedicated to your well-being and care, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to see the docs, but when you do it is totally worth it. They make you feel as though you are the most important person and I have never felt as though they were too busy or did not care. I LOVE Suburban Orthopedic – I think you can tell I am a little biased.

These Doctors are outstanding! They listen and really pay attention to you and your situation. They are positive, kind and caring. Their goal is to make you feel better. I really think highly of them because they take their time with you and don’t rush through like a lot of doctors. They are really wonderful! They are just great at what they do and they CARE. The staff is warm and friendly too which is very important as well.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Dr. McNally for your unconditional care!

When my husband first hurt his back at work I had no idea the long, long road ahead of us. After 14 months of office visits, physical therapy, injections, dealing with workman’s comp issues, etc. we finally ended up at Dr. McNally’s office . . . what a lucky break for us! The staff at Suburban Orthopaedics was not only efficient and knowledgeable but also caring. We were well prepared for what lay ahead. The surgery went well and he is recovering quite nicely . . . Thank You Dr. McNally!
I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

I am very grateful to have followed the referral to Dr. Freedberg in the winter of 2009. Thanks to his dedication and his vast knowledge of his field, Dr. Freedberg discovered that the problem was really much more serious spinal cord compression problem which I never expected. As most would do, I sought other doctors for a second and third opinion, I then discovered that Dr. McNally was had more experience with triple level cervical fusions than any other orthopaedic surgeon in this area and was held in the high esteem and recommendations of fellow surgeons. I must admit I was truly impressed when more than one doctor will admit that ‘your’ doctor IS among the best of the best. Thank You Dr’s Freedberg and McNally for saving my life. The road to recovery has been rough however I’m grateful for my doctors, they are the BEST!!!
