Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty

The kyphoplasty procedure is used to treat vertebral compression fractures which typically occur in the thoracic or lumbar spine. A compression fracture can be caused by trauma and are more common in patients with loss of bone mass (osteoporosis).

Over time, patients with multiple compression fractures can affect posture and cause exaggerated rounding of the spine called kyphosis. During a kyphoplasty procedure, bone cement is injected into a fractured vertebra using fluoroscopic guidance to help relieve pain, improve mobility, restore function, and mend the fracture.

We offer on-site pain management with our advanced non-opiate procedures and multidisciplinary treatment plans.
