Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty are minimally invasive procedures used to treat painful vertebral compression fractures, a common complication of osteoporosis. These fractures can cause significant pain, limit mobility, and even lead to a hunched posture. In both procedures, a needle is advanced into the spine column and cement mixture is injected to treat fractures that cause pain.

These procedures offer several advantages:

  • Pain relief: Studies show significant pain reduction within days of the procedure.
  • Improved mobility: Increased strength in the vertebrae can lead to improved mobility and function.
  • Shorter recovery time: Patients often experience a quicker return to daily activities compared to traditional surgery.
