Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery to treat spinal compression fractures. The procedure is used primarily in spinal vertebral bodies that have been weakened by osteoporosis. These fractures typically occur in the thoracic and lumbar spine.

The goals of kyphoplasty are to stabilize the fracture, reduce the pain, and restore the vertebral body to its original height.

The procedure is performed in Interventional Radiology Lab where a small incision is made over the pedicle of the fractured vertebra. A tool is inserted to create a channel for the balloon. The balloon is then inserted, and the balloon inflates the vertebral body with a goal of getting it to its original height. The balloon is then replaced with medical-grade cement. The needle is removed, and the patient is brought to a short recovery area.

Patients go home typically in two to four hours after the procedure. It is totally an outpatient procedure. This procedure has a success rate of 90%. It is one of the most rewarding procedures an Interventional Radiologist performs.
