What Is A Kyphoplasty?
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive spine procedure used to treat vertebral compression fractures. Compression fractures are often due to age-related degeneration and trauma, which causes the vertebrae to collapse and can cause severe pain in the back. The kyphoplasty procedure aims to restore vertebral body height and strength to reduce pain and avoid reinjury.
This procedure is for patients whose conservative treatment has not been successful after 4 – 6 weeks and are at risk of becoming bedridden. Our team can provide you with the complete details about this minimally invasive spine surgical procedure at your consultation. Reach out to Pain Zero in Central Ohio.
How Is A Kyphoplasty Performed?
Kyphoplasty is considered a minimally invasive surgery. During the procedure, your Pain Zero physician will gain access to the fractured vertebral body through a small incision. Once in position, a surgical balloon is inflated with contrast medication to help heighten the vertebrae and move them back in place.
Special bone cement is then mixed and injected into the cavity in your vertebrae that the balloon created. This bone cement helps to restore vertebral height, provide strength to the vertebrae to avoid reinjury, and alleviate the pain that was associated with the compression fracture. The procedure can take up to two hours to perform, and patients typically require 4 – 7 days of rest before resuming light daily activities.
