When one or more of the bones within the spine, known as vertebrae, are damaged or fractured, vertebroplasty is performed to correct the issue. This is an advanced procedure that utilizes specialized bone cement to secure and hold the fractured bone(s) in place. This process helps provide much-needed support to the spine to enable flexible body movement and to prevent any deformity of the spine, such as a hump or curved contour. Vertebroplasty is usually reserved for those who have a severe spinal compression fracture. If you or your loved one have recently suffered from a spinal fracture, we invite you to get in touch with our team at Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels or Seguin, TX.

"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

Vertebroplasty is an invasive, outpatient procedure that is performed on-site at our care facility. On average, it takes about one hour per fragmented vertebra to complete. At the start of your appointment, we will utilize a live x-ray feed to determine the exact location of your fracture and identify the areas of injection. From there, a specialized needle will be used to insert the bone cement into the spine. We also recommend that patients arrange for a responsible adult to drive them home after their appointment. Traditionally, it takes about two days for patients to notice a significant improvement.
