Vertebroplasty is a procedure in which a special cement is injected into a fractured vertebra — with the goal of relieving your spinal pain and restoring your mobility.Not all people with fractured vertebrae are candidates for the procedure, however. Some studies also suggest that vertebroplasty provides little benefit over a more conservative approach, which can include:
- Bed rest
- Pain relievers
- Muscle relaxants
- Back braces
- Physical therapy
Patients should talk with their doctor about vertebroplasty’s risks and benefits.
Orthopaedic Surgeon at Shreya Hospital in Ghaziabad may recommend the procedure if:
- Traditional methods of treating your fractured vertebra or back pain fail
- You suffer from severe or prolonged pain or immobility
- The fractured vertebra has led to more serious complications, including: Deep vein thrombosis, acceleration of osteoporosis, respiratory problems, loss of height and emotional or social issues.
