Immobilizing your spine can promote healing and reduce your pain. We offer many different braces, depending upon the location and severity of your spine fracture. We use braces for stable fractures, which means your bone is not likely to move after we stabilize it. Unstable fractures are more serious and challenging to align, so surgery is often necessary.
We use minimally invasive techniques through a small incision to minimize your pain, quicken your recovery, and lower your risk for surgical complications. Surgeries include:
- Spinal Fusion: Fuses damaged vertebrae with a bone graft using plates or rods to form a single, solid piece of bone that is more stable.
- Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty: Uses bone cement to stabilize compression fractures, which are less severe than traumatic fractures.
