Treatment For Compression Fractures
A compression fracture is most commonly caused by osteoporosis (loss of bone mass), which can occur due to aging. As we get older and our bones weaken, the simplest of movements can cause a fracture. To treat this, Valley Medical uses a minimally invasive surgery called Balloon Kyphoplasty.
Balloon Kyphoplasty is a procedure performed with local anesthesia and sedation where needles are inserted into the fractured vertebra and a rapid-setting bone cement is injected. This often results in dramatic relief of pain and the ability to return to everyday activities.
