Serving Phoenix, AZ & Surrounding Areas

One of the most common procedures for treating spinal disc fractures at our Phoenix Arizona office is kyphoplasty. A kyphoplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure, which can relieve up to 90 percent of the pain associated with compression fractures in your spine. It can also act as a stabilizer and restore height and reduce deformities. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, by our Board Certified Spine Surgeon Dr. Minesh Zaveri. As with all treatments, non-surgical or surgical, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zaveri so we can get you back on track and living pain free.

“The entire experience from scheduling an appointment to walking out the door was fantastic. You really get the sense that this is a world class practice. They made me feel welcomed and did not rush through the visit. He, and his PA, answered all my questions and ensured I understood the prognosis and all possible directions of care moving forward. I’m very happy we came across SPS.”

Treatment Plans

What is a Kyphoplasty?

Step One

During the procedure, the doctor makes a small incision in the back to place a narrow tube or probe. Through fluoroscopy, the tube is guided to the appropriate position, creating a path through the back to the site of the fracture.

Step Two

Using X-ray images, the doctor carefully places a balloon, often called a bone tamp, inside the tube and then carefully inflates it. This part of the procedure will elevate the fracture, which helps relieve pain and pressure by restoring the normal position of the fractured vertebrae.

Step Three

After the balloon has been removed, the doctor uses instruments to inject a material that resembles a cement-like material into the cavity, which will quickly harden and stabilize the bone and fracture.
