Anytime I sneezed, coughed or hiccupped, I had horrible pain. I couldn't lie down; I couldn't work. But after the procedure, I noticed right away the stinging pain was gone.
Dr. Nguyen's metastatic spine cancer procedure gave me back hope. It gave me back my life. Just being able to walk, ride a bike, shower, sleep horizontally; these things are such a blessing.

OTHER TREATED CONDITIONS

In this procedure, a large needle is introduced into the spine with a balloon called a bone tamp and inflated until it expands to the desired height. The space created is then filled with or injected with orthopaedic cement called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA).
This procedure restores the height of the vertebrae and reduces the deformity.
