What is Kyphoplasty?
The procedure is performed using anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Using a Fluoroscope for guided imaging, your physician will insert a needle under the skin in the affected area and into the vertebral fracture. A small balloon device inserted through the needle is used to expand the fractured vertebrae and create a space for the insertion of special bone cement. This material will stabilize the damaged bone and provide improved posture, mobility and overall comfort once healed. Your treatment should last about one to two hours depending on the number of vertebrae that are being treated.
