The Surgeon General warns that by the year 2020, half of all Americans over age 50 will be at increased risk for an osteoporosis-related fracture. A spinal fracture occurs when one of the bones in the spinal column weakens and collapses. Incredibly, two-thirds of patients who suffer from this type of fracture are never diagnosed or treated by a physician! Fortunately, there's a minimally invasive procedure called Balloon Kyphoplasty that can help repair spinal fractures. Balloon Kyphoplasty can reduce back pain, increase mobility and has been performed on over 187,000 patients worldwide.
