Kyphoplasty Procedure

Treating spinal compression fractures near Naples, FL

During a spinal compression fracture one, or more, of the vertebrae in the spine collapse. The result is a painful situation that restricts your ability to move, sleep, and even breathe properly. Spinal compression fractures can be caused by osteoporosis, cancer, and often occur due to injuries related to slip and falls in the workplace.

Neuroscience and Spine Associates are able to perform a kyphoplasty procedure within days of your first appointment at our MRI Center in Naples, Florida. Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery and most patients return home on the same day as the procedure.

Kyphoplasty Procedure Process

During the kyphoplasty procedure your surgeon creates a small incision in your back, and inserts a narrow tube.  With the assistance of x-ray imaging an orthopedic balloon is inserted through the tube and blown up inside the spinal cavity. The balloon returns the collapsed vertebrae to its original height, and quick-drying bone cement is injected into the cavity. As the cement dries it creates a type of internal cast, and the affected vertebrae are stabilized and restored to their original height.
