Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat continued and severe pain after a new compression fractures of the spine. In the office procedure room with anesthesia, a specialized needle is carefully placed into the compressed vertebral body. A cavity is created using a specialized medical balloon to create space for bone cement. The bone cement helps to
stabilize the fracture and relieve pain.

What to expect after a kyphoplasty:

After a kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty, patients will typically feel a reduction or resolution of the compression fracture pain.

Patients may experience some mild pain and/or muscle spasms around the area of the pain. This discomfort can be treated with NSAIDs (ibuprofen, etc) and ice or heat. Some patients continue their prescription medications during this time.
