Kyphoplasty is a highly effective procedure for treating symptomatic compression fractures that do not respond to nonsurgical treatments. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained spine specialists perform this minimally invasive surgery using proven techniques and equipment, resulting in significant and sustained results with high patient satisfaction. Compression fractures are tiny cracks in a vertebra, most commonly caused by osteoporosis but also by injuries and impaired bone healing. Symptoms include spine pain, extremity pain, weakness, numbness, and height loss. Nonsurgical treatments such as rest, activity modification, medications, and bracing may be tried first. However, when they do not provide symptom relief, kyphoplasty may be recommended. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to receive a diagnosis and seek appropriate treatment options. Please contact us to schedule an appointment and take the first step toward relief.
