Specific Conditions and Treatments

Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures and Vertebral Balloon Kyphoplasty

Compression fractures can occur when one’s bone gets weaker. These fractures may even occur from minimal to no trauma and often cause sudden, severe pain. X-rays are the first step in diagnosis however often an MRI and/or other advanced imaging studies may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis as well as assess for other spinal problems. If indicated, a kyphoplasty can tremendously and rapidly decrease pain from these fractures. This is typically done in the office with local anesthesia. It involves inflating a balloon into the vertebral body and then injecting orthopaedic bone cement into the bone. The cement interdigitates into the cracks of the fracture, somewhat like “gluing” a fracture together. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes per level treated with typically exceptional pain reduction.
