Operative Spine – Kyphoplasty

This procedure is used to treat patients who are suffering from trauma; most often fractures of the vertebrae. Surgeons insert a medical balloon into the spine that when inflated elevates the site of a vertebral fracture and returns pieces to a normal position. Kyphoplasty is intended to relieve pain associated with a fracture, stabilize the bone, and restore vertebrae height if the fracture is compressed.
