New procedure for fracture of spine

UDUPI: The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Dr T M A Pai Hospital has done a special procedure called Vertobroplasty on an 80-year-old female for an Osteoporotic fracture of spine.

This procedure is done under local anaesthesia, without a big incision and involves putting bone cement inside the vertebral body of spine using a small needle.

This procedure is done in selected patients with Osteoporotic fractures as well as some other pathological conditions of spine who have not responded to conservative treatment. For appointments call 0820- 4291000.
