A kyphoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to stabilize the bone, and to restore some or all of the lost vertebral body height due to the compression fracture.

What is Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that can repair spinal fractures. It takes about an hour (per level) to treat a fracture with balloon kyphoplasty, and the procedure is done on an outpatient basis.

Benefits

Kyphoplasty can reduce or eliminate back pain from a spinal fracture, as well as restore vertebral body height.

  • Correction of vertebral body angular deformity
  • Significant reduction in back pain
  • Improved ability to perform activities of daily living
  • Improved quality of life
  • Low complication rate

Consequences of Untreated Spinal Fractures

If a spinal fracture is left untreated, the vertebra may heal in the “broken” or “caved in” position. This can lead to increased forward curvature, or kyphosis, the medical term for the visible postural change that people refer to as a “dowager’s hump” or “hunchback.”
