Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty

Similar to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty may be used on patients with compression fractures in the spine. Kyphoplasty offers the potential to restore bone height in the vertebra and reverse deformity of the spine. Mayo Clinic offers both treatments, allowing specialists to choose the correct treatment for each patient.
