What is Kyphoplasty?

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to treat vertebral fractures caused by osteoporosis or injury. Unlike traditional treatments, kyphoplasty focuses on stabilizing the fractured vertebrae and restoring height, effectively alleviating pain and improving mobility. This procedure involves the use of specialized tools to create a cavity within the fractured vertebra, followed by the injection of bone cement to stabilize the bone and alleviate pain. By restoring vertebral height and alignment, kyphoplasty can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from vertebral fractures.

How Does Kyphoplasty Work?

During a kyphoplasty procedure, a small incision is made, typically less than one inch in length, through which specialized instruments are inserted. These instruments allow the surgeon to access the fractured vertebra and create a pathway for the insertion of a balloon-like device. Once in position, the balloon is inflated to gently elevate the fractured bone and restore vertebral height. This elevation creates a cavity within the bone, which is then filled with bone cement to stabilize the fracture. The entire procedure usually takes about an hour per treated vertebra and is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s needs.

Benefits of Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty offers numerous benefits for individuals suffering from vertebral fractures. These include rapid pain relief, improved vertebral height, and restored spinal alignment. Additionally, kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, resulting in shorter recovery times and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional surgery. Patients typically experience significant pain relief and improved mobility shortly after the procedure, allowing them to return to their daily activities with minimal disruption. Furthermore, kyphoplasty has been shown to reduce the risk of future fractures in treated vertebrae, making it an effective long-term solution for osteoporosis-related spinal fractures.

Have a question?

In the 16th century, Lenape referred to its farthest northwest corner, by the cove on the Hudson River at present-day Gansevoort Street, as Sapokanikan (“tobacco field”). The land was cleared and turned into pasture by Dutch and their slaves, who named their settlement Noortwyck (also spelled Noortwijck, “North district”, equivalent to ‘Northwich/Northwick’). In the 1630s, Governor Wouter van Twiller farmed tobacco on 200 acres (0.81 km2) here at his “Farm in the Woods”. The English conquered the Dutch settlement of New Netherland in 1664, and Greenwich Village developed as a hamlet separate from the larger New York City to the south on land that would eventually become the Financial District. In 1644, the eleven Dutch African settlers in the area were freed after the first Black legal protest in America. All received parcels of land in what is now Greenwich Village, in an area that became known as the Land of the Blacks.

The earliest known reference to the village’s name as “Greenwich” dates back to 1696, in the will of Yellis Mandeville of Greenwich; however, the village was not mentioned in the city records until 1713. Sir Peter Warren began accumulating land in 1731 and built a frame house capacious enough to hold sittings of the New York General Assembly when smallpox rendered the city dangerous in 1739 and subsequent years; on one occasion in 1746, the house of Mordecai Gomez was used. Warren’s house, which survived until the Civil War era, overlooked the North River from a bluff; its site on the block bounded by Perry and Charles Streets, Bleecker and West 4th Streets, can still be recognized by its mid-19th century rowhouses inserted into a neighborhood still retaining many houses of the 1830-37 boom.

From 1797 until 1829, the bucolic village of Greenwich was the location of New York State’s first penitentiary, Newgate Prison, on the Hudson River at what is now West 10th Street, near the Christopher Street pier. The building was designed by Joseph-François Mangin, who would later co-design New York City Hall. Although the intention of its first warden, Quaker prison reformer Thomas Eddy, was to provide a rational and humanitarian place for retribution and rehabilitation, the prison soon became an overcrowded and pestilent place, subject to frequent riots by the prisoners which damaged the buildings and killed some inmates. By 1821, the prison, designed for 432 inmates, held 817 instead, a number made possible only by the frequent release of prisoners, sometimes as many as 50 a day. Since the prison was north of the New York City boundary at the time, being sentenced to Newgate became known as being “sent up the river”. This term became popularized once prisoners started being sentenced to Sing Sing Prison, in the town of Ossining upstream of New York City.
