Vertebral Augmentation in New Jersey

A Minimally-Invasive Solution to Serious Injuries

Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) are, unfortunately, an increasingly common and very serious problem among older Americans. These are among the most common type of fractures that result from osteoporotic fragility, and the result is frequently debilitating and prolonged pain. Instead of simply putting up with the pain through use of medication or enduring a risky and invasive surgical procedure, turn instead to our New Jersey endovascular experts!

Causes of VCFs

Vertebral compression fractures can be caused by osteoporosis, which thins bones and weakens the structure of the spine, as well as by trauma. The symptoms for these fractures are often quite evident and present as severe pain – or numbness – in the back or extremities. However, if the bone collapse taking place is more gradual, the symptoms may be more subtle.

How the Treatment Works

During vertebral augmentation, we create a void in the affected vertebra using a balloon catheter. This helps us to control and contain the delivery of the cement. After placement, the cement hardens and acts as a cast that stabilizes the internal structure, helping to alleviate the pain. The procedure has been shown in certain studies to result in effective pain relief for up to 80-90% of patients.
