A 53-year-old female asked:

Very different surg: Kyphoplasty and fusion are two different procedures done for different reasons. Kyphoplasty is for a painful compression fracture that has not yet healed, and meets certain criteria pertaining to the severity of compression and the fracture pattern. Spinal fusion may be indicated in patients with chronic pain and some other condition such as instability of the spine or perhaps degeneration.

Yes: The purpose of a post-op shoe is immobilization. This both serves to immobilize the fracture and encourages healing as well as increase comfort with weight bearing. A shoe with a wide toe box and a stiff sole would also serve this purpose. Many of my patients find clogs suit their needs.

Depends: Having an imaging study showing a disc herniation does not mean that the said herniation is causing symptoms. The significance could be determined by a thorough history and physical examination. Simple squats in isolation would not be optimal for maintaining a healthy back. Rather, exercises geared towards maintaining flexibility and strenghtening core back and abdominal muscles should be the goal.
