KYPHOPLASTY & VERTEBROPLASTY
Your doctor has determined that you have a spinal fracture, also known as a vertebral compression fracture (VCF). This type of fracture can cause severe back pain. Left untreated, one compression fracture can lead to multiple fractures that, in turn, could alter the shape of your spine and adversely affect your overall health.
Traditional treatment for spinal fractures is limited to bed rest, bracing and management of pain, often with narcotics. Although appropriate in some cases, this type of treatment does not address the deformity caused by the fracture.
JAYON Balloon Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment that can stabilize the fracture and reduce back pain, as well as restore vertebral body height and spinal alignment.
How the balloon works
Jayon Balloon Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment in which orthopedic balloons are used to gently elevate the fractured vertebra in an attempt to return it to the correct position. Before the procedure, you will have diagnostic studies, such as x-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to determine the exact location of the fracture.
With a hollow instrument, the spine specialist creates a small pathway into the fractured bone. A small orthopedic balloon is guided through the instrument into the vertebra. The incision site is approximately 1cm in length.
