I had never heard of Kyphoplasty and was a little afraid of it at first. But when I met the staff at Advanced Therapies at Rochester Radiology, everything was explained to me and I saw the model of the procedure.
The procedure went well, I never really had any pain afterwards. I was able to go home the same day. My overall pain is at least 50-60% better than it was, and even better than that some days.
Before the procedure, I couldn’t sleep in bed and had to sleep in a chair because I couldn’t get in and out of bed on my own. Afterwards, I have been able to sleep in bed and get up independently the majority of the time.
I still have some pain, but take less pain medications, and my quality of life has improved. My friend said I stand taller and don’t walk around like an old woman. I can walk better and farther than I was able to before. I was able to do some of the cooking and preparation with my family for Thanksgiving, which was so nice, and made me happy.
I am able to get out and do things I wasn’t able to do for a long time, like go help sell tickets for a theater group. I am happy I had it done. It has really improved the quality of my life.

“I have had the most wonderful experience at The Vein Institute. When I first started, my legs were discolored because of my veins and very painful and bulging. Everyone was beyond supportive, ensuring me they will get better, and they did! The staff is very welcoming and informative. The treatments I received were quick and the staff walked me through each step offering information and encouraging questions. I have recommended them to others. I would never go anywhere else! My before and after pictures are amazing.”

“I came to your office for the elimination of my varicose veins. Your office was suggested to me by one of your success stories… she encouraged me to give you a call. After visiting your office and being checked by Dr. Gupta’s team, I decided to have the procedures to remove my varicose veins. It was suggested I have the injection treatment as well as the laser method, due to my condition. The day of the procedure I was impressed by the team work demonstrated throughout the treatment. I really enjoyed observing the way Dr. Gupta worked with the physician assistant and sonographer to alleviate my condition. During my post operation visits, the same phenomena was observed.”

“I was told the aching and itching would go away immediately following the procedure. I was slightly doubtful because I had experienced these symptoms for so long. I noticed that the aching and itching went away immediately. Even though I have waited for it to return, it has not!’

“A dream come true- can’t thank you ALL enough- a pleasure to work with!”
Marlene, Rochester NY
“Both procedures went very well. My pain was easily relieved with Tylenol. The soreness and bruising has certainly diminished over the last 2 weeks. I have felt an occasional pulling which quickly resolved as outlined in the post procedure instructions. It is so great to look at my legs minus the ugly bulging varicose veins, especially during the summer!! Both you and your staff are great and made me feel very comfortable during the procedure.”

“I would like to give a testimonial for the wonderful results I received at The Vein Institute. I have had my veins treated in Michigan and Ohio, without much success and a lot of pain. Dr. Pyne at The Vein Institute treated my veins with the least amount of pain and the most success I have ever had before. The Vein Institute treated me with care and concern. I’m extremely happy with the results I received at The Vein Institute. I would strongly recommend them.”
Guy, Rochester NY
“Dr. Pyne and the staff, they were excellent. The care and kindness were much appreciated. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks.”

“Just wanted to take a minute to say how glad I am that I came to the free vein screening over a year ago. Selena was always positive and welcome as I checked in. Dr. Pyne and his assistants were always friendly and willing to answer any questions I had both before and after my treatments. I like the way Dr. Pyne told me what he was going to do before proceeding. Now, more than a year later, I can stand and walk for long periods of time without aching. I always looked at before and after pictures that are in the paper and was skeptical of their authenticity. When I saw mine I was really surprised at the difference. The health takes time but is well worth the final outcome!’
