Who should avoid kyphoplasty?
Kyphoplasty is not a suitable treatment option for every patient. This procedure has its contraindications and your doctor will tell you more about them during your first meeting.
People who suffer from coagulation disorders, arthritis, complete vertebral collapse, degenerative disc disease, unstable fracture, are some example of patients who don’t qualify for kyphoplasty.
Some patients with osteoporosis might also not qualify for this procedure. Moreover, when the spine’s deformity is already established, kyphoplasty will not be able to correct it.
