Sacral fractures are very painful and go largely untreated.
A simple minimally invasive procedure that takes maybe 20 minutes at the most, is very successful in eliminating pain. Here’s a picture of a lady’s sacrum after sacroplasty, who was in her 80s and sustained painful sacral fractures. She was in excruciating pain for months, in spite of narcotics and other medications and epidurals. She came to Premier pain Institute to Dr Sham Vengurlekar, interventional pain specialist who performed sacroplasty on her. The patient hopped off the procedure table and has been pain free for 4 months after the procedure. She has not required opiates, narcotics, or anti-inflammatory medications after the sacroplasty.
