Is Kyphoplasty Right for Me?

Our patients who require kyphoplasty have suffered some kind of damage to their vertebra, usually a compression fracture. Compression fractures can be caused by weakened vertebrae due to aging, a spinal infection or tumor, or trauma to the spine.

During the procedure, a surgeon cuts a tiny incision in the back. A small balloon is inserted and filled to stabilize the area, and bone filler material is then injected into the space.

This procedure restores the height of the vertebrae, alleviates pain in the area, and even improves posture. If you have questions about kyphoplasty, feel free to make an appointment with experts at the Q Spine Institute for a consultation.

Am I a Candidate for Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a common procedure at Q Spine Institute with generally high success rates, in terms of relieving any pain that you might experience and providing stability to the fractured vertebra.

Because kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, risks are considered lower when compared to more aggressive or open surgery.

There are risks and complications involved with any kind of surgery, however, including kyphoplasty. Kyphoplasty is an elective surgery, and it’s recommended that you talk with your surgeon and research the risks of the surgery, along with other methods for pain relief.

If you have questions about kyphoplasty or any other minimally invasive surgery at Q Spine Institute, make an appointment for a consultation with us today.
