What is Kyphoplasty?

Similar to Vertebroplasty this procedure is used to stabilize a broken bone in the spinal column known as a compression fracture. It is unique in using a balloon to correct vertebral body shape and to create a space into which cement is injected to stabilize the fractured. This technique can be used when restoration of vertebral body height is considered to be important or when the degree of compression is greater than that recommended for vertebroplasty.
