At Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX, we offer an extensive list of services, including kyphoplasty. This procedure is performed to reduce the discomfort that is caused by a spinal compression fracture and helps correct abnormal curving of the spine. When one or more of the vertebra in the spine is damaged, it can hinder the overall structure and function of the spine. Kyphoplasty utilizes a small balloon to reshape and restore the fragmented vertebra. Traditionally, kyphoplasty is performed in conjunction with vertebroplasty and is only suggested after patients have tried other therapies without success. Don't put off getting the care you need, and connect with our practice today to sit down with one of our interventional pain management physicians.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020

Kyphoplasty is a highly specialized procedure that is performed to address spinal deformities and fractured vertebras. At the start of your procedure, we will have you lie down on your stomach as advanced x-ray technology is used to identify the area of concern. A tiny incision will be made near the damaged vertebra or curved section of the spine and a hollow tube will be inserted. Then, a balloon stint will be piped down the tube and slowly inflated to gently reshape the fractured or deformed bones. Typically, at this point, bone cement will be used to hold the restructured bones in place (vertebroplasty). Before you are released to go home, we will review all aftercare instructions with you and set up a follow-up appointment.
