NEW PATIENT FORMS FOR COMPRESSION
Compression fractures in the spinal column can occur for multiple reasons but the most common is osteoporosis. At DVVI, we provide a minimally invasive procedure called Kyphoplasty to directly inject bone cement into the injured tissue in order to stabilize the spine. When it comes to kyphoplasty compression fracture treatment, we use imaging guidance to insert a balloon into the fractured bone and create a space and fill it with cement. Most patients not only regain mobility, but experience immediate pain resolution moments after the procedure. As a result, they become more active and their quality of life drastically improves.
