“Tailbone removal is a procedure that is not very commonly done. Tailbone is the ending part of the vertebral or the sacrum. So the only indications to the patient who needs to remove it is a fracture that has, had not successful outcome but persistent pain and malformation. Most the cases that we have done on tailbone removal are because of a malformation. We can do that because it produces pain in the sacrum area and the success rate of the procedure with this indications is very good because the patient will definetely feel the difference after it has been removed.
Concering a fracture, it’s always wise to try to give it a conservative treatment, as long as its possible and tolerated by the patient but still there are some patients that won’t feel better with the treatment and at the end may require a tailbone removal. The truth of this procedure is that it’s not very commonly done because most of the patients at the end will feel better with the conservative treatment but with certain patients such as the congenital malformation or so, that’s when we insist on doing the procedure and they do very well with the outcome generally.”
