SPINAL INTERVENTIONS


Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that treats painful compression fractures in the spine. Vertebrae are small bones which make up the spine. When they are fractured, the pain can be severe and a loss of mobility will often result. The whole procedure takes one to two hours to perform, depending on how many bones are treated. Our physicians will insert a needle through a nick in the skin in the back, directing it under x-ray guidance into each fractured vertebral body. Then they inject a medical-grade bone cement into the fractured vertebra. The cement hardens within 15 minutes and stabilizes the fracture, like an internal cast.
