Kyphoplasty is a pain management treatment used to treat compression fractures in the spine. A compression fracture in the spine can cause sudden pain and could be caused by osteoporosis, trauma, or motor vehicle accidents. If your exam reveals a spinal compression fracture, our team of specialists at Interventional Pain Doctors pain management LA can help determine your treatment options, like kyphoplasty.

Treatment

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive outpatient procedureused to help treat spinal compression fractures. It is performed using image guidance and a large needle that implants bone cement into the vertebrae to restore height and stabilize the fracture.  Our pain management LA practice can perform this regenerative procedure to help reduce or eliminate your back pain.

Recovery

Some patients will immediately feel relief and should be able to walk around within an hour of the procedure. There may be some soreness or mild tenderness following the procedure, but that should subside quickly. Patients can return to their daily routine as long as they limit strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting, for up to six weeks. Interventional Pain Doctors specialize in pain management LA and will schedule a follow-up appointment with you so they can make sure your procedure was successful.
