The general approach to treating fractures is to ensure the bone is aligned correctly and immobilize it to keep it still and safe while your bone heals. In some cases, your body might need some extra help.
For example, if you have a compression fracture, Dr. Thomas can provide kyphoplasty to repair the damaged vertebra.
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a surgical balloon to gently expand your damaged vertebrae back to its normal dimensions before Dr. Thomas fills it with bone cement. Dr. Thomas provides a back brace to protect your spine while your bones heal.
Additionally, Dr. Thomas might provide regenerative medicine therapies to accelerate the healing process or other pain management techniques to help you stay comfortable while you recover.
He might also recommend physical therapy to help you stay supple during your recovery and rebuild strength and flexibility after your bone has healed.
