Kyphoplasty

A kyphoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to stop the pain caused by a spinal compression fracture, to stabilize the bone, and to restore some or all of the height of the vertebrae which is lost due to the compression fracture. 

Kyphoplasty cannot correct a long standing deformity of the spine and certain patients with osteoporosis are not candidates for this treatment, but patients experiencing painful symptoms or spinal deformities from recent compression fractures are likely candidates for kyphoplasty. Ideally, the procedure should be completed within 8—12 weeks of when the fracture occurs for the highest probability of success.
