Vertebroplasty of the vertebral body in the thoracolumbar region

The team of the Lower Silesian Center for Minimally Invasive Spine Neurosurgery KCM Clinic in Jelenia Góra specializes in minimally invasive and endoscopic surgical treatment of cervical, lumbar and thoracic spine diseases. A rupture or fracture in the spinal cord may be caused by osteoporosis or an injury to the spine. The disease causes a lot of back pain in patients, which requires intervention. One of the minimally invasive methods of treatment is vertebroplasty of the vertebral body.

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in the event of a rupture or fracture of the vertebral body accompanied by pain. The most common indication is osteoporosis. The procedure involves injecting a cement glue through a special needle into a broken or squashed vertebral body. This stiffens the damaged vertebral body and stabilizes the pain-provoking elements moving in relation to each other.

Before surgery, it is necessary to have a consultation with a neurosurgeon performing the procedure – dr hab. Stanisław Kwiek. To qualify for the procedure, a current MRI or CT scan result is required – the result cannot be older than 6 months. The test results should be with you during the consultation on the CD – the test description alone is not sufficient.


Magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography is also available as a private service at OMEGA diagnostic imaging, which receives patients in the same building as KCM Clinic.

The patient must perform tests in accordance with the recommendations of the neurosurgeon after medical consultation prior to the procedure. Anesthesiological consultation, performed on the day of admission to the hospital ward, is also necessary. Prepare for a two-day stay in the hospital ward at KCM Clinic. Before the procedure, the patient reports to the Registration with full documentation and the results of imaging and laboratory tests.

It should also be remembered that patients after surgery cannot drive a car. The patient should take care of an accompanying person who will help ensure a safe return home.

Specialised physiotherapy and rehabilitation are very important after neurosurgery. It is absolutely necessary to follow the instructions of the doctor and medical staff. Correct physiotherapy is managed by Krzysztof Suszyński, MD, physiotherapy specialist, both before and after our minimally invasive endoscopic procedures.

Persons struggling with comorbidities or other health problems must inform their physician during the first qualification consultation. Before the procedure, all tests should be carried out as prescribed by the doctor and all recommendations before and after the procedure should be followed.
