Information about Vertebral compression fracture
The vertebral column, also known as the backbone or spine, is part of the axial skeleton. The vertebral column is the defining characteristic of a vertebrate in which the notochord (a flexible rod of uniform composition) found in all chordates has been replaced by a segmented series of bone: vertebrae separated by intervertebral discs. The vertebral column houses the spinal canal, a cavity that encloses and protects the spinal cord.
There are about 50,000 species of animals that have a vertebral column. The human vertebral column is one of the most-studied examples.
The London Spine unit at The Harley Street Hospital we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of Vertebral compression fracture. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Vertebral compression fracture. Xrays cannot often diagnose the problem and the best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Vertebral compression fracture.
If you have been diagnosed with Vertebral compression fracture or you have been advised to have surgery on your spine including your Thoracic Spine then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Vertebral compression fracture can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Information about Leeds
Leeds is the largest city in the county of West Yorkshire in the north of England. Leeds is the cultural, financial and commercial heart of the West Yorkshire Built-up Area (2011 census classification), the UK’s fourth-most populous urban area with a reported population of 1.8 million in 2013.
Leeds was a small manorial borough in the 13th century, becoming a major centre for the production and trading of wool in the 17th and 18th centuries, then a major mill town during the Industrial Revolution; wool was still the dominant industry, but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing, and other industries were also important. From being a market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century, Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century.
