What is Kyphoplasty?
Kyphoplasty is a vertebral augmentation surgery that treats fractures in the vertebra.
How can it help you?
The goal is to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, stabilize the bone, and restore lost vertebral body height due to the compression fracture.
How does it work?
With X-ray guidance, your doctor will insert a needle through your skin and back muscles into the bone, then inflate a balloon to help the vertebra regain its normal shape.
