Is Vertebroplasty Right for Me?

Vertebroplasty is a procedure that we recommend only for patients who have suffered some kind of damage to their vertebra, usually a compression fracture.

Compression fractures can be caused by weakened vertebrae due to osteoporosis, aging, spinal infection, or trauma to the spine.

During this minimally invasive surgery, a surgeon cuts a small incision in the back, and then injects bone filler material into the damaged vertebral space. This procedure restores the height of your vertebrae, alleviates pain in the area, and can help to improve your posture.

Am I a Candidate for Vertebroplasty?

Vertebroplasty is a common procedure with high success rates, in terms of relieving pain that you might experience and providing stability to the spine.

Because vertebroplasty is performed as a minimally invasive procedure at Q Spine Institute, risks are considered lower when compared to more aggressive or open surgery.

There are risks and complications involved with any kind of surgery, including vertebroplasty. Vertebroplasty is an elective surgery, and you should talk with your surgeon and research the risks of the surgery, along with other methods for pain relief in the spine.

If you’d like to know more about vertebroplasty or would like to discuss your condition and possible treatment options with us, make an appointment for a consultation with Q Spine Institute today.
