What You Need To Know About Back Pain and Kyphoplasty
The kyphoplasty procedure is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, outpatient treatment performed through one or two needle holes for each spine fracture. The needles are inserted using the latest in high resolution imaging technology. Balloons are inserted through the needle(s) to re-expand the bone; the resultant cavity is filled with a bone cement to internally cast the broken bone. Kyphoplasty procedures typically result in greater than 90 percent of patients experiencing near-complete or complete pain relief. Patients with spinal compression fractures have a higher risk for additional fractures; these fractures can also be treated with kyphoplasty. Interventional Physicians of Indiana is one of the leading kyphoplasty centers in the U.S, with physicians performing more than 1000 kyphoplasties.
