What is a kyphoplasty?

Overview: Kyphoplasty is a procedure that us used to treat certain fractures in the vertebrae, or bones of your spine.

The fractures treated by kyphoplasty are called compression fractures. These fractures generally occur in bones weakened by osteoporosis or a tumor. In compression fractures, a solid section of bone known as the vertebral body collapses. Compression fractures are not only painful, but can also put harmful pressure on the nerve roots present nearby or on the spinal cord itself.

kyphoplasty is done to treat these fractures by creating space in the bone that was lost when the bone collapsed, then filling the required space with a solid, cement-like mixture.

A kyphoplasty surgery may be recommended when:

  • Non-operative measures do not provide relief
  • The spine is unstable
  • The compression fracture has put pressure on the spinal cord
