Vertebroplasty is an outpatient procedure performed to stabilize and treat compression fractures located within the spine. This minimally invasive process administers an acrylic bone cement into the broken or cracked area(s) to strengthen the affected bone and minimize painful symptoms. Our team of certified physicians offers vertebroplasty to help manage pain from spinal compression fractures that occur as a result of injury, osteoporosis, or other causes. Treating fractured vertebrae as quickly and efficiently as possible is important to prevent further damage from occurring and maintain spinal health. For more on vertebroplasty procedures from Tricity Pain Associates, contact our Round Rock or South Austin, TX location today and reserve a private consultation.

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dr.Kim ! This is my first experience with a pain management doctor and I highly recommend Dr.Kim .Nerve and chronic pain can be debilitating and that's exactly what I was experiencing 6 months ago when I first came to Dr.Kim.Wasnt sure what to expect but after Dr.Kim quickly diagnosed me with stenosis and a bone spur causing the pain and inflammation he wasted no time in treating me with a series of injections, pain medications and physical therapy. While I am not quite back to 100% I am in a MUCH BETTER place than I was 6 months ago.Dr.Kim is truly sincere about your needs when it comes to injuries and pain and he is a GREAT listener! His physicians assistant and staff are all great too !

At our modern pain management facility, vertebroplasty procedures are performed under local or general anesthetic. One of our skilled physicians will accurately inject the bone cement into treatment areas using advanced fluoroscopy technology (real-time x-ray). Several injections may be required, depending on the symptoms and extent of damage that occurred. Once your procedure is complete, we may have you lie on your back for a while, giving the cement time to fully fill fractures in the bones, harden, and stabilize the vertebrae. Our team may also monitor you further to help facilitate a positive recovery and optimize your treatment outcomes.
Without proper care, spinal compression fractures can impact your long-term health and comfort. Get the treatment you need from a dedicated, experienced team. To schedule your appointment, contact Tricity Pain Associates in South Austin or Round Rock, TX.
