Nonsurgical Treatment for Spinal fractures by Sarasota Interventional
Radiology


Spinal Fractures caused by osteoporosis – a weakening of the bones - either lived with a
marked curvature of the spine called “widow’s back” or had difficult, often painful surgery.
Now, Vertebroplasty offers those with spinal fractures a safe, pain free alternative to a lifetime
of suffering or surgery.

Unfortunately, almost 700,000 spinal bone fractures occur every year, mostly to women over
the age of 60. In addition to age and sex, risk factors for the condition include:

      A family history
      Being past menopause
      The abnormal absence of menstrual periods
      Anorexia or bulimia
      A lack of calcium in the diet
      Long-term use of corticosteroids or anticonvulsants
      Lack of exercise
      Smoking
      Excessive drinking

Interventional radiology offers a safe, non-surgical treatment called Vertebroplasty that has
proven to be highly effective in eliminating the pain caused by the spinal fracture.

Our office will be happy to try to accommodate any special needs you may have and will inform
you of any special preparations you need to make before your appointment.
