Brain surgery and spinal surgery require meticulous technique. The neurosurgeons and neurology team at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital have advanced training and offer the latest in surgical technique and clinical excellence.
Spinal compression fracture commonly caused by osteoporosis, trauma and spinal tumor may now be treated with this surgical technique that is over 90 percent effective in treating painful, debilitating symptoms.
Kyphoplasty, a minimally invasive procedure, stabilizes the fracture and reduces spinal deformity. Unlike simple Vertebralplasty, Kyphoplasty consists of an additional step that restores vertebral height and can provide the patient with immediate pain relief.
