YOU MAY HAVE A BROKEN BACK

A vertebral compression fracture (VCF) occurs when one of the bones in your spine weakens and collapses. The fracture occurs in the round column-like portion of your vertebrae. These back fractures commonly occur as a result of osteoporosis, cancer, or some form of traumatic injury.

Kyphoplasty Helps Back Pain Sufferers

Get Back to Life

Balloon kyphoplasty is an outpatient procedure used to treat painful, acute vertebral compression fractures (VCF) associated with osteoporosis, cancer, or bone trauma.

During the kyphoplasty procedure collapsed vertebrae are filled with a special bone cement to restore the shape and strength of the vertebral body.

What Happens During Kyphoplasty?

First, a needle is inserted into the compressed vertebrae.

A balloon is inserted through the needle into the vertebral body then inflated to create a cavity and gently lift the bone sections into normal position.

The cavity created from the balloon is then filled with orthopedic cement – a bone cement technically know as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) – which hardens quickly to create an internal cast, stabilizing the bone.

Numerous studies have been done on kyphoplasty, including the EVOLVE kyphoplasty study, which showed that kyphoplasty patients reported a 72% reduction in back pain. It is one of the best studied procedures in scientific literature related to the spine.

Benefits of Kyphoplasty

Clnical research shows multiple benefits for patients who have kyphoplasty. Prior to kyphoplasty many patients reported back pain so severe that they had difficulty climbing stairs, bending or kneeling, or simply caring for themselves.

After Kyphoplasty, patients reported:

  • Major reductions in back pain (that last long after the procedure)
  • Improved ability to walk unassisted
  • Improved ability to care for one’s daily activities
  • Reduced days needed for bed rest
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved overall health status

Many patients simply say that “kyphoplasty gave me my life back!”

Kyphoplasty Recovery Times

Kyphoplasty surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure typically performed on an outpatient basis. Studies show that most patients who undergo kyphoplasty surgery experience immediate improvement in back pain.

Kyphoplasty recovery times will vary by patient, but most patients are advised to avoid any strain or stressful movements for the first 24 hours, then slowly resume normal activities over the course of the next several days and weeks.

Did you know?

Common medications may cause bone loss and contribute to the onset of osteoporosis. Some of these include: antacids, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depressants, steroid medications, diabetes medications, diuretics, opioid pain medications, heart medications, contraceptives and others.

We are seeing men and women in their 20’s and 30’s with osteoporosis symptoms.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

"Dr. Webb is very supportive and actually takes the time to listen to your problems before he comes up with the treatments you may need. Instead of just looking at the xrays and telling you what you need. And this is way more helpful and benifits the patient. I hadn't had a doctor just listen to me and then come up with a plan before and because of that I feel better than I have in a long time. I appreciate the sincere concern for my health his team always gives me."

"I went to Dr Webb after 9 years of pain & being told I had bulging discs by a couple & Drs I was told I had bad arthritis by later spine institute in OKC & for $10,000 they could fix my problem I heard Dr Webb's commercial & my girlfriend made me an appointment & he tells me I had fractures in my spine that he could fix & probably get rid of 90% of my pain with a procedure called kypoplasti & my back feels at least 80-90% better so I recommend if you've been told there's nothing they can do go see Dr Webb he knows what he's doing."
