Are you suffering from debilitating back pain caused by vertebral compression fractures? At SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine in Peachtree Corners, GA, we offer advanced Kyphoplasty procedures to restore spinal stability, relieve pain, and enhance your overall quality of life.
What is Kyphoplasty?
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to treat vertebral compression fractures, which commonly occur due to osteoporosis, trauma, or spinal tumors. During the procedure, a specialized balloon-like device is inserted into the fractured vertebra and inflated to restore the vertebral height. Once the desired height is achieved, a bone cement is injected to stabilize the vertebra and relieve pain.
Conditions Treated by Kyphoplasty
Kyphoplasty is an effective treatment option for the following conditions:
Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures: These fractures occur due to the weakening of bones caused by osteoporosis, a condition characterized by decreased bone density and strength.
Traumatic vertebral compression fractures: Fractures resulting from traumatic injuries such as falls, accidents, or sports-related incidents.
Vertebral compression fractures due to spinal tumors: Tumors in the spine can weaken the vertebral bones, leading to compression fractures and severe pain.
