Get Relief from Osteoporosis and Compression Fractures
Fractures of the vertebrae in the spine are common, painful, and serious.
One of the most common bone diseases in the United States, compression fractures occur close to 2 million times a year, and most cases are related to osteoporosis. Even worse, many results in chronic pain.
While conservative treatments work for some, many patients’ pain remains significant and constant. At Louisiana Pain Care, we offer leading-edge treatment that can relieve the pain of vertebral compression fractures, while stabilizing the spine, and helping to minimize other health consequences.
We offer two of the most successful treatments for vertebral compression fractures:
- Vertebroplasty: In this minimally invasive procedure, an injection of special surgical cement into the vertebral body fills in the fracture and stabilizes the spine.
- Kyphoplasty: For significant fractures, kyphoplasty may be the procedure of choice. Also a minimally invasive procedure, it involves using a catheter with a small balloon to be inflated inside the vertebra, which increases the vertebral height before the special stabilizing cement is injected.
