What options do you have? Georgia Pain and Wellness Center offers many different procedures for our patients. Some of the treatment options are minimally invasive procedures. Kyphoplasty is one minimally-invasive procedure that repairs a vertebral compression fracture. It helps restore the spine’s natural shape. Some patients experience rapid pain relief after the procedure. Kyphoplasty involves a balloon device that is placed through the needle and into the vertebral body. The physician carefully inflates this balloon to expand the fractured bone. When the balloon is deflated, it leaves a cavity in the middle of the vertebral body. The balloon is removed. For some patients, more than one needle and balloon may be used.
Our doctor’s understand that each patient is different and will develop a unique plan that is specific to the patients needs. Visit our website for more information or give us a call at (770) 962-3642 to see if you’re a candidate for this procedure.
