What Is a Kyphoplasty?
A kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive spinal surgery that promises pain relief quickly. It’s typically used to treat spinal fractures, which are extremely painful because they involve the vertebrae of your spine. Through a kyphoplasty procedure, you find quick relief from your back pain. This minimally invasive procedure not only eliminates your pain, it helps you regain your natural height.
You can suffer a spinal injury due to a fall, car accident or another type of trauma. If left untreated, a spinal fracture can lead to:
- Chronic pain
- Height loss
- Permanent disability
- Even spine deformities
