YOU MAY HAVE A SPINAL FRACTURE
A vertebral compression fracture (VCF) occurs when one of your spinal vertebrae weakens and collapses. Osteoporosis is the most common cause of these types of fractures of the back, as osteoporosis allows bones to become weak and brittle. Untreated compression fractures can lead to debilitating knife-like pain in your back and over time can shorten your spine causing it to curve forward. Many people are surprised to learn that they have more than one fracture.

Osteoporosis Care in Tulsa
Without Surgery or Narcotics
Tulsa back doctor & renowned bone health expert, Dr. James Webb is a nationally-recognized osteoporosis specialist, known for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures associated with osteoporosis, combining minimally-invasive procedures (including kyphoplasty and medication) that can repair spinal fractures, reduce pain and restore mobility with osteoporosis prevention and management. Recently, Dr. Webb played a key role in the EVOLVE kyphoplasty study, the largest clinical trial of its kind, to track the success rate of kyphoplasty fracture repair for osteoporosis sufferers. They showed that back pained was reduced by 72% following kyphoplasty.
Osteoporosis Spinal Fractures
The importance of seeking early treatment from an osteoporosis specialist cannot be overstated. Many spine fractures go undiagnosed, even for years. One fracture left untreated makes you more susceptible to additional fractures. Multiple vertebrae fractures cause kyphosis curvature of the spine and pinched nerve pain.

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."
"Dr James Webb is a God sent miracle. He has changed my outlook from death to life without having total back surgery. Thank you Dr James Webb I have recommended him to several people."

"Dr, Webb and his staff are utmost professional and I have never had any problems getting questions answered or even calling to speak with staff of anything.

"I've had several Dr's since I was injured and dr webb is by far the best I've ever had. Always straight and don't dance around the truth. It's difficult to find a Dr these days that truly cares about those they're trying to help. He does I believe. God bless you all."
"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."
