Reasons for Procedure
Both procedures are used to decrease pain from a vertebral fracture. Kyphoplasty also restores the height of the bone. This can decrease the spinal deformity caused by the fracture.
Other treatment for vertebral fracture may include nonsurgical treatments, such as bed rest, bracing, and pain medicines.
