What is Kyphoplasty?

Category: Surgeries

false

A kyphoplasty is a surgical procedure in which a small balloon is inserted into the space to create a space to inject a cement mixture. This is done to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to stabilize the bone, and restore some of the lost vertebral body height due to a compression fracture.
