Kyphoplasty is a revolutionary procedure for treating spinal fractures, providing both rapid relief and efficient recovery. At OrthoConnecticut, our skilled orthopedic specialists have extensive experience in performing kyphoplasty with a dedicated focus on precision and patient well-being.

Understanding Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a specialized medical procedure designed for vertebral compression fractures, often caused by osteoporosis or traumatic injuries. The process involves a small incision, inserting a balloon-like device into the fractured vertebra, gently inflating it to create space, and injecting medical-grade bone cement to stabilize and restore the bone's height.

Benefits of Kyphoplasty

1. Swift Recovery

One of the primary advantages of kyphoplasty is its quick recovery period. Unlike traditional open surgeries, this minimally invasive procedure allows patients to resume normal activities sooner, promoting a faster return to a normal daily routine.

2. In-Office Convenience

OrthoConnecticut takes pride in offering kyphoplasty as an in-office procedure. This means patients can receive expert care without the need for a hospital stay, ensuring the comfort of a familiar environment for the procedure and recovery at home.

3. Pain Reduction

Kyphoplasty provides rapid relief from the severe pain associated with vertebral compression fractures. By stabilizing the fractured vertebra, most patients experience immediate alleviation of discomfort, enhancing overall quality of life.
