Osteoporosis, some cancers and even benign lesions can at times cause painful spinal fractures, also known as vertebral compression fractures. This condition can cause significant pain, limit one’s activities, and over time can lead to serious medical complications. A new minimally invasive procedure, called balloon kyphoplasty, can repair these spinal fractures, restoring the ability for most patients to participate in daily life again. Come and learn more about this new treatment at these free seminars. Speaker is Michael Lange, MD. Advance registration requested please.
