Vertebral Augmentation

Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive procedures to treat severe pain caused by vertebral compression fractures, which are fractures in vertebra, the small bones that make up the spinal column. Both vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty involve inserting medical-grade cement into the fractured vertebra through small, minimally invasive incisions in the skin with x-ray guidance. Both techniques are successful about 90% of the time in relieving the pain of fractured vertebrae.
