Kyphoplasty Atlanta, GA

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to alleviate back pain caused by spinal fractures and other spinal conditions. A spinal fracture or spinal condition can be difficult to cope with because it can cause intense pain, but kyphoplasty is designed to help patients find relief. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are an orthopedic and interventional spine practice that specializes in finding solutions to chronic and acute pain conditions using interventional spine treatments such as kyphoplasty. Our practice is made up of double board certified Interventional Spine Physicians and an orthopedic specialist who are committed to helping patients find long term relief and improved function.

A kyphoplasty treatment procedure is an outpatient procedure that is typically quick, pain free, and offers immediate results for many patients. During the procedure, patients will lie face down so that the doctor will have access to the spine. A small incision will be made in the patient’s back and a tube will be inserted to create a path to the damaged vertebra. A special tube will be inserted in the pathway and a small balloon will carefully be inflated. When the balloon inflates, the vertebral fracture will be lifted and the vertebra will be returned to a more natural position. The balloon will be removed and the cavity will then be filled with polymethyl methacrylate, which is a cement-like liquid that will harden and stabilize the vertebrae quickly.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we understand that chronic or acute back pain can affect every area of a person’s life. Kyphoplasty can give relief to many who suffer from back pain due to spinal fractures and other spinal conditions. To find out if you are a candidate for kyphoplasty, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to set up a consultation.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
