What is Kyphoplasty?
Ignoring back pain is never a good idea, especially when it cannot be treated with oral pain medications and other traditional therapies to relieve pain. You may find out that your pain is actually a spinal compression fracture that will not heal on its own. This can lead to the curvature of your spine. Dr. Mark Valente, our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, has devoted his career to identifying the source of his patients' pain and giving beneficial solutions. One of the surgical techniques he can offer is kyphoplasty in an outpatient setting at Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX. Kyphoplasty can help you have better posture, less pain, and stop the impacted vertebrae from moving out of position.
Dr. Valente can meet with you one-on-one in a private consultation to talk about the pain and curvature of your spine. He will take the time to get to know more about your health history, current medical conditions, medications you take, and more to discern what is causing the issue. We also have the technology at Preston Surgery Center to take spinal x-rays to document the most recent imaging of your spinal condition. Then, Dr. Valente can discuss whether you would be a great candidate for kyphoplasty, which involves the placement of a special type of balloon into the vertebra through a small incision. A narrow tube will transport the balloon to the site where it will be inflated. The balloon will move the vertebrae back into place. Dr. Valente will fill the balloon with polymethylmethacrylate, and then he will close the incision.
