On the day of the injection, you will be positioned comfortably on an examination table. The area where the injection will take place is cleansed and sterilized.

Understanding These Procedures

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are minimally invasive medical procedures aimed at treating vertebral compression fractures, which often result from osteoporosis or trauma. These fractures can lead to severe pain and deformity. Both procedures involve the injection of bone cement into the fractured vertebra, stabilizing the bone and reducing pain.

Procedure Overview

Initial Patient Evaluation

Before undergoing Vertebroplasty or Kyphoplasty, our skilled medical team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history, symptoms, and relevant imaging studies. This evaluation helps us determine the most suitable approach for your condition.

Preparation & Anesthesia

On the day of the procedure, you will be positioned comfortably on an examination table. The injection site will be sterilized to ensure a clean environment and minimize the risk of infection. To ensure your comfort during the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the skin and tissues around the injection site.

Vertebroplasty Procedure

Guided by imaging technology, a needle is precisely inserted into the fractured vertebra. Bone cement is injected into the vertebra, filling the fractured area and providing stability

Kyphoplasty Procedure

A balloon catheter is inserted into the fractured vertebra and inflated to create a cavity. The balloon is deflated and removed, and the cavity is filled with bone cement.

Benefits of These Procedures

Both procedures provide rapid pain relief by stabilizing the fractured vertebra and reducing movement that causes pain.

Patients often experience enhanced mobility and the ability to resume daily activities without debilitating pain.

By stabilizing the vertebra, these procedures help prevent future fractures in the same area.

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are minimally invasive alternatives to traditional open surgery.

Recovery and Follow-Up

After the procedure, you might experience some mild discomfort at the injection site. This is normal and should resolve within a few days. You should monitor your pain levels and any changes in your symptoms. Our medical team will provide you with post-procedure guidelines and activity recommendations. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess your progress and the effectiveness of the procedure.
