Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

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.
