What is Vertebroplasty?

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive spinal procedure in which medical-grade bone cement is injected percutaneously through a small hole in the skin, into a fractured vertebra with the goal of relieving back pain caused by vertebral compression fractures from osteoporosis, or tumor. The cement hardens quickly to stabilize the area while allowing for quicker recovery.
