Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty

Both Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty are minimally invasive procedures that reinforce damaged vertebrae. While utilizing different techniques, both treatment options have the goal of stabilizing the vertebrae and ultimately providing pain relief.

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a cement mixture to reinforce fractured vertebrae, strengthening the spine for immediate pain relief and prevention of future fractures.

With a Vertebroplasty, an endovascular neurosurgeon injects cement-like bone substance into vertebrae that are damaged due to osteoporosis, tumors, or trauma. The substance stabilizes and alleviates the cracked bone rapidly, providing immediate pain relief and improving mobility.
