Vertebroplasty is a medical procedure used to treat painful vertebral fractures, often caused by osteoporosis or trauma. It is like giving your spine a little extra support. Here is how it works: when a vertebra fractures, it can lead to severe pain and a hunched back. Vertebroplasty steps in to help.

During the procedure, Dr. Maxime Debrosse inserts a tiny needle into the fractured vertebra, guided by X-ray imaging. Then, a special bone cement mixture is injected into the vertebra. This cement hardens quickly, stabilizing the fractured bone.

The benefits are clear: less pain and better mobility. Think of it as patching up a crack in a wall; it strengthens the structure. Recovery time is usually minimal, and most patients can go home the same day. Vertebroplasty is not for everyone, so our physician will determine if it is the right choice for you. But for those who qualify, it is a straightforward procedure that can bring significant relief.

Remember, your spine is crucial for a healthy, active life. A vertebroplasty in Mount Dora and Orlando, Florida, is one way modern medicine is helping people like you maintain their quality of life, one pain-free step at a time.
