Kyphoplasty & Vertebroplasty

 

"I couldn't lie down or sit up — I couldn't do anything. Dr. McLaughlin was my doctor. When I woke up, I literally jumped from the table. I had no pain. It sounds unbelievable, I know, but that's the God's honest truth. They are so gracious in that practice, so professional and caring. It's just a very nice environment where you feel like you're the only patient." — Loretta McMenamin

 

What is a compression fracture?

A compression fracture occurs when the bones in the spine collapse. One of the most common causes of compression fractures is a loss of bone density. Osteoporosis causes more than 750,000 vertebral compression fractures per year.

Treatments

  • Kyphoplasty
    Kyphoplasty (kye-fo-plas-tee) is a minimally invasive procedure designed to alleviate the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to help stabilize the bone, and to restore lost vertebral body height. A balloon is inserted into the fractured vertebra, and filled with medical-grade bone cement, which strengthens and stabilizes the bone.

  • Vertebroplasty
    Like kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty (ver-tee-bro-plas-tee) is a minimally invasive procedure designed to alleviate the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to help stabilize the bone, and to restore lost vertebral body height. With the use of a needle, medical-grade bone cement is injected directly into a vertebra.

These minimally invasive treatments are less painful and offer a quicker recovery time so you can get back to your normal activities.
