Life After KYPHON Balloon Kyphoplasty

One of the advantages of having a minimally invasive procedure is the potential for a shorter recovery time. After KYPHON Balloon Kyphoplasty, you may be surprised by how quickly you’re able to resume some of your favourite activities.

After the Procedure

While in the hospital, you may be encouraged to walk and move about. Patients usually report immediate relief from back pain and are able to walk and move about during their hospital stay.

Your doctor will probably schedule a follow up visit and explain limitations, if any, on your activity. Most patients are very satisfied with the procedure and are gradually able to resume activity once discharged from the hospital.

Daily Living

Talk to your doctor about how you can maintain a healthy lifestyle after your procedure. Exercising and eating a healthy diet are always important, but as a matter of routine following a medical procedure, your doctor may give you instructions specific to your overall health and level of conditioning. 

Patients often report a swift return to activities they enjoyed prior to suffering with the back pain of a spinal fracture.
