Kyphoplasty Excellence Driven. Superior Results.

Kyphoplasty is used to treat osteoporotic spinal compression fractures, multiple myeloma, or lymphoma metastatic carcinoma. A minimally invasive procedure used to treat compression fractures due to osteoporosis, tumors or other conditions. Kyphoplasty stabilizes the bone and helps to restore vertebral height lost as a result of the injury.

Patients experiencing painful symptoms or spinal deformities from recent osteoporotic compression fractures are good candidates for kyphoplasty. Ideally the procedure should be completed within 8 weeks of the fracture occurring for the optimum chance of restoring height.

The procedure typically includes the use of a small balloon that is inflated in the vertebral body to create a space within the cancellous bone prior to cement delivery.

Once the space is created, the procedure is similar to a vertebroplasty, but in a Kyphoplasty the bone cement is delivered directly into the newly created space.

Recovery Time from a Kyphoplasty

The patient may be able walk as little as one hour after the procedure and should be able to go home the same day or within 36 hours depending on their general health.

It’s normal to experience some soreness that could last a few days where the needle was put into the spine.

Most patients report noticeably less pain in their back immediately after surgery than before.

Based on a patient’s general health, their doctor will give guidelines for activity, physical therapy, and medications.
