Back Pain and More

Feeling chronic pain in your back? Many chronic pain conditions can be treated with injection-type therapies. We perform these minimally invasive procedures in our in-office suites and provide safe, appropriate sedation when needed.

To learn more about our treatments, select from the options above or scroll down.

VertebroplastyVertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that treats painful osteoporotic or metastatic compression fractures in the spine. The whole procedure takes one to two hours to perform, depending on how many bones are treated. Our physicians will insert a needle through a nick in the skin in the back, directing it under x-ray guidance into each fractured vertebral body. Then they inject a medical-grade bone cement into the fractured vertebra. The cement hardens within 15 minutes and stabilizes the fracture, like an internal cast.

KyphoplastyKyphoplasty

Similar to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to help alleviate pain from vertebral compression fractures. A high-pressure balloon is positioned and inflated to help restore height to the compressed vertebra. The resulting cavity is filled with bone cement to stabilize the fracture.
