With the present progression rate in medical science, kyphoplasty has been gaining ground as a popular treatment for osteoporosis fractures. Osteoporosis makes the bones brittle and prone to frequent breakage. The demineralization of the bones mostly occurs with progressing age and can cause frequent fractures. In cases that involve fracturing of the vertebrae, kyphoplasty is highly implemented. The procedure is furnished through minute invasion and uses bone cement to join and restructure the broken bone. As compared to other spinal surgeries, the average kyphoplasty cost is $6000 and is performed in major countries across the world. 

What is Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a type of spinal surgery that involves cementing fractured vertebral column. The surgery is swift and requires a minute invasion through which a trocar is inserted. For the correct insertion, the surgeons may require assistance for advanced X-Ray imaging, in order to locate the area of the fracture. Through the trocar, a balloon or kyphon is inserted, which then inflates and makes room for pouring the bone cement. 

Ideal Candidates for Kyphoplasty Surgery

In advanced stages of osteoporosis, bone fractures become frequent and need medical attention. However, surgical procedures like kyphoplasty are recommended only in case of bone fractures, or cracks in the vertebral column. Thus, ideal candidates for the procedure are individuals who:

  • Have suffered a minor vertebral fracture
  • Has exaggerated spacing between adjacent vertebrae
  • Has eroded or disintegrated vertebral column 
  • Is unresponsive towards long-term conservative treatments

Factors affecting the cost of Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty cost mostly depends on the kyphon kit or the balloon used in the surgery. In general, a single balloon costs approximately $3500, or more. Apart from this, the other factors affecting the cost are:

  • Number of procedures required 
  • An area where damage has been diagnosed
  • The extent of fracture occurred
  • Follow up treatments required.
