Spinal compression fractures are most commonly found in elderly patients suffering from osteoporosis. Persisting severe pain from compression fractures can now be controlled or eliminated, without surgery, by a percutaneous (“through the skin,” i.e., no incision) vertebroplasty, Balloon Kyphoplasty, RF kyphoplasty or sacroplasty procedure at one of our affiliated Illinois hospital locations. Prior to treatment, every patient will undergo clinical evaluation, then detailed spinal imaging (usually MRI scanning) to precisely characterize and target the problem.
