What Is Kyphoplasty?

In most cases of herniated disc, a physical exam and a medical history are all that’s needed to make a diagnosis. If Dr. Yashar doctor suspects another condition or needs to see which nerves are affected, he may order imaging or nerve tests.
Patients with compression fractures tend to experience significant pain and decreased mobility; kyphoplasty aims to fix both of these. However, it also typically works to address concerns with the curvature of the spine, restoring height to the patient as well.
Though kyphoplasty is minimally invasive, we often try non-surgical treatments first. Your treatment plan will depend on your compression fracture and its current state. Some patients may find relief through non-operative treatment. However, others may need surgical treatment before trying any non-surgical options. Dr. Yashar will work personally with you to determine what the best course of action is for you, perfectly matching your treatment to your unique needs.

How Does It Work?

As a vertebral augmentation surgery, kyphoplasty adds to the spine, strengthening it to relieve symptoms. A balloon is inserted between the vertebra, which is then inflated. Doing this relieves pressure on the affected area. A bone cement is then injected to fill in the fracture. This cement essentially serves the same function as your natural bone. As it fills in the fracture, it restores stability to your spine in the affected area.

About the Procedure

We work closely with each patient and ensure that their procedure is unique suited to them. Dr. Yashar will offer you the option of either local or general anesthesia. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and effective treatment every step of the way.
