Recovery from Kyphoplasty
Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, affirms the recovery from kyphoplasty should be with minimal pain.
The doctor says they can clear the patient even up to 48 hours after surgery. After a week, most of the patients can start an exercise program.
He affirms the procedure is covered by insurance if patients have the requirements for the surgery.
Patients with chronic fractures can’t be eligible for that procedure.
