What is a vertebral augmentation?
This is a safe proven, and effective procedure that offers your physician unparalleled control when treating spinal fractures, from initial access to final stabilization of the fractured vertebra. To date, thousands of patients have benefited from the positive effects of Vertebral Augmentation. Now you can too!
Vertebral Augmentation with the StabiliT(r) System The StabiliT(r) System enables your physician to safely and efficiently perform a Vertebral Augmentation, a procedure that will provide rapid relief to back pain caused by a spinal fracture.
Vertebral Augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure that usually requires only sedation and local anesthesia, and a small incision to access the vertebra. The entire procedure typically takes just 30 to 40 minutes to complete.
After the vertebra is accessed, a small, specifically designed instrument is used to create small spaces within the vertebra. The bone cement is delivered slowly, allowing it to fill the small spaces and penetrate into the vertebra. The bone cement hardens within minutes, effectively immobilizing the fracture and reinforcing the bone.
A small band-aid is placed over the incision following your treatment. You’ll then spend sometime in the recovery room, after which time you will be able to return home. As you begin your recovery, you can expect to feel rapid and lasting back pain relief. Soon you should be able to return to your normal daily activities and experience a renewed and improved quality of life.
