Service Description

Treatment of a spinal fracture caused by osteoporosis is generally two-pronged, involving both treatment of the fracture, and treatment of the underlying osteoporosis which led to the fracture

Vertebroplasty - This minimally invasive treatment is devised to help lower or eliminate pain caused by a fractured vertebra and balance the bone. Low viscosity cement is administered directly into the contracted vertebral body under the pressure, with the aim of balancing the fracture and easing the related back pain.

Kyphoplasty - Identical to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive technique devised to lower or stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to balance the bone, and to restore certain or all of the lost vertebral body height caused by the compression fracture.

Spinal Fusion Surgery - Spinal fusion surgery is sometimes used for spinal compression fractures to terminate movement between two vertebrae and ease pain. The technique joins two or more vertebrae together, holds them in the right position, and keeps them from moving until they have a chance to grow together, or join.
