Lumbar Kyphoplasty


Lumbar kyphoplasty is a commonly selected minimally invasive procedure used to treat vertebral compression fractures in the lumbar spine. This procedure is often recommended for individuals experiencing severe back pain due to fractures caused by osteoporosis, trauma, or other underlying conditions. The decision to undergo lumbar kyphoplasty versus other treatment options is influenced by various factors, including the patient’s overall health and the recommendation of the healthcare provider.


During lumbar kyphoplasty, a small tube is inserted through the skin and directed towards the fractured vertebra in the lumbar spine. The primary objective of the procedure is to stabilize the fractured vertebra and alleviate back pain by injecting bone cement into the damaged area.

Utilizing fluoroscopy guidance, the surgeon gains a clear visualization of the fractured vertebra and the surrounding structures. This real-time imaging helps ensure precise placement of the bone cement, leading to improved outcomes and relief of pain.

One key benefit of lumbar kyphoplasty is the potential for rapid pain relief and restoration of vertebral height. By stabilizing the fractured vertebra, the procedure can help enhance mobility and quality of life for individuals suffering from debilitating back pain.


To perform lumbar kyphoplasty, the patient is positioned on the operating table, and local anesthesia or sedation is administered for comfort. A small incision is made near the fractured vertebra in the lumbar spine.

Under fluoroscopic guidance, a balloon-like device is inserted through the incision and inflated within the fractured vertebra to create a cavity. The balloon is then deflated and removed, leaving behind a space that is filled with bone cement to stabilize the fracture.

The entire procedure is performed with precision to ensure optimal outcomes and minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. Following the completion of the intervention, the incision is closed, and the patient is monitored before being discharged.


Patients undergoing lumbar kyphoplasty typically experience immediate pain relief and improved vertebral stability. While some individuals may need a short period of rest following the procedure, many can resume normal activities soon after. Patients are advised to follow post-operative instructions provided by their healthcare team to support proper healing and long-term outcomes.
