Building Better Bones

June 18, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dr. Peppelman and Dr. Joshi

Surgical treatment of spinal compression fractures using the technique known as kyphoplasty not only repairs but also restores alignment and helps prevent future problems. Most patients experience immediate pain relief and are quickly able to return to their normal activities.

Prevention & Treatment of Spinal Fractures due to Osteoporosis

Dr. Peppelman and Dr. JoshiNearly 10 million Americans have osteoporosis. Unfortunately, there are no obvious symptoms of brittle bones. It isn’t until an accident or fall occurs that a person is usually diagnosed with osteoporosis. Spinal fractures resulting from osteoporosis can lead to chronic pain, difficulty walking, and inability to perform daily activities. At PinnacleHealth, we offer the most comprehensive osteoporosis program in the region. From screenings, prevention, medication management, rehabilitation, and surgery, our specialists provide services to both men and women.

Learn more by joining Walter Peppelman, DO, orthopedic and spine surgeon, who will share information about a minimally invasive surgical procedure called kyphoplasty for people suffering with compression fractures of the spine, and Renu Joshi, MD, PinnacleHealth endocrinologist, who will discuss prevention, diagnosis, and medical treatment of osteoporosis.
