Kyphoplasty Offered to Patients in Reno, NV and Carson City at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical ClinicKyphoplasty Carson City NV

Patients with a spinal fracture may be recommended for a kyphoplasty procedure, which is designed to repair the height and function of a fractured vertebra through surgery. However, before kyphoplasty is ever recommended, a patient must undergo an X-ray to confirm a fracture has occurred in the vertebra and that surgery is the only option left to treat the condition. At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we provide X-rays, trauma fracture care, and kyphoplasty (as well as other treatments) for patients in the Reno, Nevada and Carson City area.

Since 1966, we have been committed to serving our patients with the best medical treatment available. Kyphoplasty is a leading way to treat a vertebral fracture by allowing the pieces of bone to reset properly and restoring the correct shape to the vertebra in order to maintain function in the spine. A kyphoplasty begins by inserting a small tube into the fractured bone through an incision in the neck or back. Through this tube, a small balloon is filled, which will lift the pieces of the fractured vertebra into the correct placement, allowing them to be set so the bone can begin to heal properly. By inserting this balloon into the vertebra, a small gap is formed in the center of the spinal bone. Once the balloon is removed, the stabilizing portion of the kyphoplasty procedure can begin. To stabilize the vertebra surgical cement is injected into the gap to hold the fractured bones in place so healing can commence.

After a kyphoplasty surgery has been completed, the patient may be recommended for physical therapy to help restore the spine’s mobility. Our surgery center in Carson City also houses a physical therapy clinic, so our patients can begin their recovery treatment from kyphoplasty surgery with no inconvenience. In addition, another benefit of Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic is that you’ll find every orthopedic specialist you need at our clinics. In addition to being convenient for you, it also encourages the collaborative expertise of our surgical teams, physical therapists, and all others involved in your care.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.
