Kyphoplasty, also called balloon vertebroplasty, is a minimally invasive treatment option for addressing a vertebral compression fracture, minimizing the common risks associated with a surgical procedure. Clearway offers this treatment option which can offer significant, immediate pain relief for many patients.
**Only available in Maryland, Michigan, and Delaware
The procedure is performed using anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Using a Fluoroscope for guided imaging, your physician will insert a needle under the skin in the affected area and into the vertebral fracture. A small balloon device inserted through the needle is used to expand the fractured vertebrae and create a space for the insertion of special bone cement. This material will stabilize the damaged bone and provide improved posture, mobility and overall comfort once healed. Your treatment should last about one to two hours depending on the number of vertebrae that are being treated.
Clearway evaluates all patients experiencing back pain to diagnose the root cause and provide the most effective treatment. While most patients in good overall health are considered candidates for kyphoplasty, we will discuss any concerns you may have and take into consideration factors that could affect your recovery.

Dear Valued Patient,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that KureSmart Pain Management will officially become Clearway Pain Solutions effective April 1, 2020. This is the final phase in a merger of these two companies that has been under way since 2019.
The integration of KureSmart and Clearway creates even greater support for patients. The driving force for both organizations has always been based on the needs of the patients and it will remain so with the new name.
As we move forward with providing state-of-the-art pain management and interventional care, patients should not expect any changes to the care they receive from our staff. All processes and employees will remain the same; only the name on the door will change.
What to expect:
All communications and correspondence will utilize the “Clearway Pain Solutions” name and brand. This includes billing statements, patient portal notification, text messages and emails.
Signage at each property will be modified as part of the transition, and the appearance of some offices will be updated, as well.
Your Care Team will remain the same and continue to provide you with the same excellent care you’ve come to expect.
