Kyphoplasty

Overview

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat spinal compression fractures caused by osteoporosis, cancer, or trauma. It involves the insertion of a balloon-like device into the fractured vertebra, followed by the injection of bone cement into the space created by the balloon. This helps to restore the vertebra’s height, alleviate pain, and stabilize the spine.

What is Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that can help alleviate pain and other symptoms caused by spinal compression fractures. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the back and a balloon-like device is inserted into the fractured vertebra. The balloon is then inflated to create a space in the vertebra, which is then filled with bone cement to help restore the vertebra’s height and stability.

Conditions Treated with Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is commonly used to treat spinal compression fractures caused by osteoporosis, cancer, or trauma. These fractures can cause severe pain, mobility issues, and a loss of height. Kyphoplasty can help alleviate these symptoms and prevent further damage to the spine.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
