The pain associated with osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures is intense. Patients are forced to change aspects of their daily life to accommodate the pain, and are often subject to daily rounds of pain medication.
Arnold Feldman, M.D. tries to treat patients without relying on drugs. Vertebroplasty allows him to do just that, and he is seeing amazing results.
Vertebroplasty is a quick procedure with a short recovery time; many patients get immediate, long-term relief from their pain and are able to stop taking prescription drugs completely, or at least lower their dosage requirements.
