Is Balloon Kyphoplasty

the answer for YOU ?

 

Kyphon® Balloon Kyphoplasty uses orthopedic balloons and bone cement to repair the spinal fracture. The procedure sets the broken vertebra by creating an internal cast. Many patients report relief from fracture pain and increased mobility immediately following the procedure.

 

In determining whether balloon kyphoplasty is right for you, it should be noted that Kyphon® Balloon Kyphoplasty has a low risk for complications, but serious ones can occur.

 

Kyphon Balloon Kyphoplasty has been shown to be beneficial for patients in whom restoration of vertebral height is feasible.1 It’s important to consult with your doctor about the benefits and risks associated with Kyphon Balloon Kyphoplasty. By so doing, you will be better able to make an informed decision.
