Manhattan Experts with Sacroplasty, performed by Matthew Spiegel, MD


A sacroplasty is a procedure commonly used to treat sacral insufficiency fractures, which are caused by weakened bones due to conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer or traumatic events (e.g. falls or motor vehicle accidents). The sacrum is a large, triangular bone located at the base of the spine, between the two pelvic bones that provide support for the weight of the upper body. The sacrum also plays a crucial role in connecting the spine to the pelvic girdle, which helps transfer weight and forces from the upper body to the lower limbs during movement. The procedure involves the injection of medical-grade bone cement into the affected area of the sacrum to stabilize and strengthen the bone, relieve pain, and prevent further damage or deformity. Sacroplasty is a relatively safe and effective procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis, with most patients experiencing significant pain relief and improved mobility shortly after the procedure.
