Vertebral Compression Fractures
Compression fractures of the spine affect about 25% of all post menopausal women and the prevalence increases with age. RF Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure using the StabiliT™ Vertebral Augmentation System to treat painful vertebral compression fractures related to osteoporosis. The procedure is designed to fix the fracture and stabilize it and provide pain relief and improved vertebral body strength. Our interventional radiologist, Dr. Karl Magsamen, has expertise in these procedures and is one of the only highly trained physicians to offer this in our area. For more information call 303-651-5145.
