Treatment was great, Dr. Halker is a great knee specialist! I am only in Turkey every so often, but every time I have a problem I go to Acibdem. Acibdem is a top Hospital, it is better than most Western Hospitals.

Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

Nas djecak Hamza je bio bezbrizan i kao vecina djece igrao je fudbal sa drugarima. Nazalost jedan dan je dosao sa povredom i tada je sve krenulo naopako. Vodili smo ga u bolnicu u Sarajevo i rekli su nam da oni ne smiju izvesti tu operaciju, na vrhuncu ocaja smo saznali za Romoy. Imam samo rijeci hvale za njih, ni jedne sekunde nas nisu ostavili same i pruzili su nam neogranicenu podrsku. Zahvaljujuci vama nas Hamza opet bezbrizno trckara sa drugarima. Hvala Vam !

What is Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive spine surgery used to treat spine fractures caused by osteoporosis, also known as severe Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCF). VCF is a fracture in the vertebral body that causes it to collapse, and ultimately causing the spinal column to develop an abnormal forward curve.

 

A Good Candidate for Kyphoplasty

Certain patients with osteoporosis are not good candidates for kyphoplasty. Kyphoplasty cannot correct already established deformities in the spine. Patients that are experiencing painful symptoms or deformities from osteoporotic fractures are the best candidates for kyphoplasty.

 

Kyphoplasty Procedure

During Kyphoplasty, the surgeon makes a tiny incision (approx. 3mm) in the lower back, and inserts a device called KyphX IBT (inflatable bone tamp) into the vertebral body where the fracture is. A deflated balloon is attached to the end of the IBT and inflated once it reaches the fractured area, which expands and creates a cavity. The balloon is then deflated and removed from the newly created cavity. The cavity is filled with bone cement to stabilize the vertebrae and straighten the spine. Kyphoplasty also restores spinal body height and vertebrae shape reducing deformity.
