About Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to bring substantial pain relief to those who are suffering from a spinal compression fracture. It is also generally performed in conjunction with a vertebroplasty. At Tricity Pain Associates in Dallas, TX, our pain management professionals are here to provide exceptional medical care that will yield optimal relief so you can get back to doing the things you love. Kyphoplasty is an innovative procedure that utilizes balloons to restructure the overall shape of the damaged vertebra. Typically, it's reserved for men and women who have tried more conservative treatments without success. Call our Carrollton, Prosper, McKinney, or Irving, TX office to visit with one of our gifted and knowledgeable physicians today to see if this procedure is right for you.

Kyphoplasty Treatment

Kyphoplasty is an outpatient procedure and is typically completed within 1 – 2 hours, depending on the number of bones that are being treated. A heavy sedative and/or local anesthetic is used to keep you from moving during your procedure to ensure your safety and the best outcome possible. Two small incisions will be created in your back on either side of the damaged vertebrae. This is achieved with the use of a live x-ray machine called a fluoroscope. A cannula is then inserted in each incision, and balloon tamps will be inserted through these devices. Each balloon will be inflated to restore the height and shape of the vertebral body. The balloon tamps will then be removed and typically a bone filler is used to fill in the space created by the balloons.
