Patients with osteoporosis are most at risk for fractures in their spine. A vertebral compression fracture (VCF) may occur from a traumatic event such as a fall, or something as simple as a bump in the road while driving. The sudden sensation of back pain for a patient with osteoporosis can be an indication of a VCF.
To correct this patients fracture and alleviate their pain we choose a balloon Kyphoplasty.
Balloon Kyphoplasty is a very effective and safe procedure for treating VCF’s.
