Cancer Pain Treatment
Over 50% of all patients fighting cancer are also trying to live with pain caused by the disease. The experts at Red Butte Healthcare recognize that the daily struggle to deal with pain is often the hardest part of fighting cancer. That is why the experts at Red Butte Healthcare are happy to partner with you and your cancer-care team to help get you get good pain control with the best resources at our disposal. Our goal is to help you achieve effective pain relief with minimal side effects and impact on your quality of life. Many types of cancer pain can be managed effectively with minimally-invasive procedures that can kill the nerves from the cancer that are causing pain. This can improve the effect of the medicines you may already be taking for pain, so that the medicine better controls your pain at doses that are less likely to cause significant nausea, fatigue, or constipation. Years of experience working with cancer patients and cancer physicians have helped to make the experts at Red Butte Healthcare among the best at partnering with cancer patients and helping them achieve relief from their cancer pain.
Vertebral Compression Fractures
Every year, over 800,000 Americans are stricken with a painful fracture of the vertebra. Most often these are caused by Osteoporosis, but can also be caused by cancer. If left untreated these spinal fractures will cause misalignment of your spine, a decline in your health, and a reduction in your quality of life. Fortunately, these spinal fractures are easily treated with Balloon Kyphoplasty, a minimally-invasive, same-day surgical procedure that can stabilize the fracture, reduce your pain, and halt the negative progression of spinal fractures. At Red Butte Health we have years of experience successfully performing Balloon Kyphoplasty and giving our patients their quality of life back.
Vertiflex Procedure
Do you suffer from debilitating back and leg pain that prevents you from doing the things you love? You may be suffering from Spinal Stenosis, a progressive condition that over 2.5 million Americans are suffering from. Fortunately, there is a minimally invasive, same-day surgical procedure called the Vertiflex Procedure that provides excellent pain control and can help improve your quality of life
