When Other Methods Fail, Turn to Advanced Therapies in Houston

Dr. LaFleur is board-certified in anesthesiology and pain medicine, and he is passionate about reducing the back, joint, and neck pain his patients face on a daily basis.

Each of Our Minimally Invasive Procedures Are Designed to Get You Back on Track
While we perform a wide array of procedural treatments, these are used for vertebral compression fractures in the spine.
- Vertebroplasty: During this procedure, Dr. LaFleur injects a cement mixture into the fractured portion of your vertebrae, effectively neutralizing the compound fracture.
- Kyphoplasty: Kyphoplasty procedures can be performed along with vertebroplasty. During a Kyphoplasty, Dr. LaFleur inserts and inflates a balloon in the area of the compound fracture, creating space for the cement mixture.
