About Kyphoplasty

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. 

Kyphoplasty Treatment

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. 

Reach out to Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels or Seguin, TX to schedule your one-on-one consultation to discuss all of your concerns. We look forward to meeting you.
