Treating Compression Fractures With Kyphoplasty
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.
