Apr 26, 2019 | Blog, Pain Management

Today, Dr. Reginald Ajakwe of Comprehensive Spine & Pain Physicians performed a balloon Kyphoplasty, a percutaneous spinal procedure for treating vertebral compression fractures (VCF’s). Over 750,000 women and men across America are effected by VCF’s annually. A compression fracture can be extremely painful for patients, when conservative treatments such as a back brace or pain medications are not effective a balloon Kyphoplasty may be a patients best option. Balloon Kyphoplasty is a safe, effective, outpatient procedure that can be performed in an office setting and is typically 15 to 30 min long with a complication rate less than 2 percent.
