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.

"After coming to this office and meeting Dr Kim, having him as my doctor I never want to go anywhere else. Not to forget his staff, and resident doctor, she is also fantastic:)"- T.M. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
"I cannot thank Dr. Kim and his staff enough for helping me manage my back pain. For three years I've struggled with lower back pain and all the different treatment plans, medications, etc. I was referred to Dr. Kim by an orthopedic spine specialist and this was the best thing that could've happened. Dr. Kim immediately assessed the issue and put a plan in place. It's been a couple of months since my ablation and I'm 99% pain free. The pain is no longer debilitating. It's amazing how "normal" I feel and am able to move, bend, twist, etc., without consequences of my lower back locking up on me or giving out. I highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone that may be experiencing pain and hasn't found a long-term solution."- M.R. / Google / Jan 04, 2021

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.
