What is Percutaneous Balloon Kyphoplasty?

Compared to the traditional surgery, Percutaneous Balloon Kyphoplastyis designed to preserve the important muscles that cover the spine. Through small working channels, muscle fibers are gently spread and at the end of the surgery, they resume their normal position and attachment to the spine.

How long is the surgery?

For the neck fusions, the procedure takes about an hour for one level surgery. 30 minutes is added for additional levels. One level back surgery takes on the order of two hours . In case of muti-level surgery, an additional hour is needed per level.

How long is the hospital stay?

One or two nights of hospital stay may be necessary for adequate pain relief.

Do I need Anesthesia?

General anesthesia and muscle relaxation are needed for a comfortable experience.

Recovery Time

An initial two weeks of rest and relaxation is needed to ensure proper healing and adequate pain relief. By the third week after surgery, a course of physical therapy and stretch exercise regimen are prescribed. Most people are able to resume their normal activities by 6 weeks after the surgery. It is a bit quicker to recover from the neck fusion.
